Here we are again:  the Lake Wobegon effect.  

A recent Gallup poll shows just that, as 77% of American adults believe our personal healthcare quality is good or better, yet only 54% say the same about national healthcare quality.

Why?  Perhaps the sample comes from a socio-economic group that gets great quality, yet laments what it sees in the system as a whole.

Unfortunately, no, that doesn't seem to be the case.  Gallup nicely describes its methodology right beneath the results.  Click the link beneath to see the whole story.

Do you agree this is illusory superiority or no?
