CNN Poll: Americans Still Oppose Individual Mandate, 6 in 10 Oppose Individual Mandate that Requires all Americans to Buy Health Insurance
According to a recent CNN/Opinions Dynamics poll, Americans still oppose the individual mandate provisions that requires all individuals to purchase health care insurance. By a 60% to 38% margin, Americans oppose the individual mandate. Also, a majority of Americans polled oppose Obamacare overall. CNN states that the number of people opposed is less than earlier this year. Maybe they would like to check out the Rasmussen poll, where 60% oppose and want the the government take over of health care repealed. Also, the ABC-WAPO poll had support for Obamacare at an all time low.
As a crucial component of the nation’s new health care law requiring all Americans to buy insurance faces an uncertain fate in federal courts, a new national poll indicates that a majority of Americans oppose that provision in the bill Congress passed earlier this year.
And a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Monday also indicates that a majority of the public still opposes the new law, but by a smaller margin than earlier this year.
According to the poll, six in ten oppose the requirement that all Americans get health insurance, with 38 percent saying they favor the provision.

Obama and Democrats hardly want Obamacare to be the issue now or going into the 2012 elections. The topic is a loser for Democrats and they know it.
