Fifty-four percent of Americans oppose Obamacare, according to a new poll; just 43% of Americans say they support the health care measure that became law three years ago.
Although components of the law are not yet completely rolled out, members of both parties still oppose it: 35% oppose the health care law because it’s too liberal, while 16% say it isn’t liberal enough. Democrats make up a vast majority of Obamacare’s support, with three quarters of self-identified Democrats saying they support the reform, according to the CNN/ORC International poll.
These numbers have only risen slightly since before the bill became law, indicating that partisanship still overwhelms the law. (Three years ago, 59% opposed the bill and 39% favored it.)
Typically liberal voting blocs support the bill in larger percentages: six in 10 non-whites support the law, as do a majority of younger Americans. A majority of Americans in urban areas and the northeast, typically blue areas, also support the law.
The survey was conducted by ORC International, with 923 adults nationwide questioned by telephone. The poll’s overall sampling error is plus or minus three percentage points.
