Independents thrilled with neither Obama, Romney health reform plans

(CNN) - Independent voters largely disapprove of or are indifferent to the plans for the US health care system of President Barack Obama and presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney, according to a new poll.

It is the third major national poll conducted and released since the landmark Supreme Court ruling on Obama's law last Thursday.

CNN Poll: Health care ruling has not impacted race for White House, so far

Washington (CNN) - Thursday's landmark Supreme Court decision upholding the country's health care law appears to have had exactly zero impact on the presidential election so far, and has produced virtually no change in opinions on President Barack Obama or Republican challenger Mitt Romney, according to a new national poll.

And while the CNN/ORC International survey released Monday indicates the president with a very slight three point edge over Romney among registered voters nationwide, the presumptive GOP nominee appears to hold an eight point advantage among voters who live in the 15 states considered in play in the race for the White House.
