Most Americans like contraceptive mandate for businesses — in one chart

The Supreme Court’s decision Tuesday to consider whether employers objecting to contraception on religious grounds should be compelled to cover their employees’ use of contraceptives anyhow has cast a renewed spotlight on an element of Obamacare that has received a great deal of attention the past couple of years.

Where do Americans stand on the mandate? Data show most have come down on the side of the Obama administration in favor of requiring contraceptive coverage, even as the issue has sparked intense feelings on both sides. That includes the specific question of whether secular private companies should be mandated to cover contraception, which is what is at issue in this case. CONT.
