Poll: Increase in backing for health care plan

Despite some reservations about health care reform before it became law, a new poll shows that more people in the Garden State now support the measure.

The Rutgers-Eagleton Poll released yesterday found 48 percent support the new health care law President Obama signed last month, while 40 percent are against it and 12 percent don't know yet where they stand.

A similar poll issued in February showed that two-thirds of people polled believed that Congress should completely revamp the bill.
