Survey: Nearly 9 in 10 U.S. adults now have health insurance

AP Photo/Jon Elswick WASHINGTON -- Underlining a change across the nation, nearly 9 out of 10 adults now say they have health insurance, according to an extensive survey released Monday. As recently as 2013, slightly more than 8 out of 10 had coverage. Whether the new number from the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index turns out to be a high-water mark for President Barack Obama's health care law, or a milestone on the path toward his goal of getting virtually all U.S. residents covered, remains to be seen. The law's future is still up in the air, and will turn on factors ranging from an upcoming Supreme Court decision on consumer subsidies to actions by Republican leaders in states opposed to Medicaid expansion. The Gallup-Healthways survey found that the share of adults who lack insurance dropped to 11.9 percent for the first three months of this year, the lowest level since that survey began its tracking in 2008.

Study of twins says they might.

As a society we believe that our political allegiance depends on which party best marries up with our needs and values – and that these are shaped by our life experiences.

Do our genes tell us how to vote? Study of twins says they might

But research with twins suggests picking who to vote for in an election might have more to do with your genes than the policies of the parties. At the Department of Twin Research, which hosts TwinsUK, the biggest adult twin registry in the UK, we recently performed a poll of voting preferences. The twins were all born in the UK and were broadly representative of the UK population. The aim was to explore how much nature and nurture influence our party political allegiances and potential voting preferences so we can draw broader conclusions about people’s voting habits.

Twins provide a unique natural experiment for research.
