A new poll by the Kaiser Family Foundation and the Harvard School of Public Health shows that 55% of Americans have an unfavorable views of Obamacare. The opposition to Obama’s government take over of health care is up 9% since last month. As much as the Politico wants to say that Americans do not want to spend time dismantling the health care pig, that is the only way that it will make the 55% of those against Obamacare happy. Of course, if Obama really wants to prove that he has made a change and shift right to the middle, rather than just window dressing … he would not stand in the way of a repeal of Obamacare and tell Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reaid to allow a vote to take place in the Senate.
Public opposition to the health care reform law spiked to a record high in a new poll out today — but Americans don’t necessarily want Republicans to spend time trying to dismantle it.
Fifty percent of Americans have unfavorable views of the law, according to a joint survey by the Kaiser Family Foundation and the Harvard School of Public Health. Opposition to the law jumped 9 percentage points from last month and is the highest since April, when Kaiser began asking the question every month.
The new opposition to President Obama’s biggest domestic policy initiative has been driven largely by independents. Fifty-seven percent of independents had an unfavorable view of the law this month, up sharply from 41 percent in December.
What do these polls tell us … Obamacare will be an issue in the 2012 Presidential election and have a say in the US Senate elections as well.
