Poll Finds Low Support For Obamacare


Obamacare is more unpopular than ever, a new poll finds.

According to an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released late Wednesday night, the president’s health reform law is considered a good idea by 37 percent of respondents, while 49 percent say that the Affordable Care Act is a bad idea. That’s the highest number since NBC/WSJ began polling about the ACA in 2009, NBC said.

The numbers are also up for whether Americans believe the law will make them worse off. Thirty-eight percent of respondents said they believe the law makes them worse off, the highest figure the survey has found since President Barack Obama signed the law. Nineteen percent said it would make them better off, and 39 percent responded it wouldn’t make a difference.

Democrats say they will be better off under the law, 35 percent to 11 percent, while Republicans say they will be worse, 67 percent to 4 percent.

NBC News also reports that individuals without health insurance have a more favorable view of the law than those who do have health insurance.

The poll of 1,000 adults was conducted May 30-June 2 and has a margin of error of +/- 3.1 percentage points.
