More than six out of 10 Americans say they disapprove of the way President Obama has handled the situation involving health care for veterans at VA facilities, a new Gallup poll released Thursday shows.
Sixty-three percent disapprove, while just 29 percent approve. Eight percent say they have no opinion.
Many Americans say they have been closely following the scandals that have rocked the VA. Sixty-nine percent say they have been following the story very or somewhat closely. The problems at the VA involve long wait times and false record-keeping.
So, how to fix the troubles? Gallup asked an open-ended question and received a wide range of responses. The most popular responses were better/timelier care, a staff overhaul and stronger supervision.
