Obamacare, unpopular as it ever was …
In the wake of the recent federal court ruling that Obamacare is unconstitutional, a recent Rasmussen poll indicates that 54% of Americans says that States should have the right to opt out of Obamacare, while only 30% say that a state should not be able to. Also, 54% also state that states should have the right to opt out of portions of the plan they disagree with.
Fifty-four percent (54%) of voters now say individual states should have the right to opt out of the entire health care plan, up from 47% in December 2009. Thirty percent (30%) disagree and say states should not be able to do that. Fifteen percent (15%) are not sure.
Similarly, 54% think states should have the right to opt out of portions of the plan they disagree with, while 31% feel states should not be allowed to partially opt out. Again, 15% are undecided.
Obviously Republicans are against Obamacare while Democrats are mostly for it; however the real issue for President Barack Obama and Democrats is that independents are solidly against the individual mandate of Obamacare, are in favor of opting out in part or in full. The loss of the independent vote is what cost Democrats in 2010, while the same hold true in 2012?
- 66% of voters not affiliated with either of the major parties are oppose to the individual health insurance mandate.
- 60% of unaffiliated voters state they should have the right to opt out of the entire health care plan.
- 57% of unaffiliated voters say yes as to whether states should have the right to opt out of portions of Obamacare.
Ultimately, 58% of voters are in favor of the full repeal of Obamacare.
