The results of CNN’s latest poll on Obamacare were delivered just two days before Christmas — and it’s unlikely they are making President Barack Obama very happy.
The telephone poll, taken between December 13-19, asked 1035 adults — 950 of whom were registered voters — the following question: “As you may know, a bill that makes major changes to the country’s health care system became law in 2010. Based on what you have read or heard about that legislation, do you generally favor or generally oppose it?”
62% of those polled said they oppose the Affordable Care Act (ACA), while support for the law hit an all-time low of just 35%.
Digging deeper into this new data on Obamacare, the president may find even more troubling news. A key demographic for Democrats is losing faith in the law. Women have soured on the program. Overall, 60% of women in the survey opposed the law, with just 35% in favor of it. That 35% disapproval rating is a new low.
The increased cost or anticipated increased cost of health care under Obamacare is also starting to weigh heavily on how people see the plan. According to the survey, 63% or respondents say that they expect health care costs will increase. Only 7% expect their medical care to be cheaper under ACA.
