Fact-Based Polling

Why was there wide support for health care reform before Obamacare?  I believe it was because 85% of Americans had coverage and generally good to excellent health care. They felt guilty about this and assumed that many Americans were not so blessed.  I wonder if these polls would have been different had they started out with statistics on% currently covered and satisfaction% of those not covered.  Ditto for gun control surveys. Provide some information,  such as declining murder rates before asking questions.  Close to push-polling, I agree, but informed opinions are often very different.
