Skip to comments.Kaiser: Faith In Obamacare Plummets To Just 35% (Barry O's Core Constituents)

The popularity of Obamacare has crashed to its lowest level in nearly two years, according to a new Kaiser Family Foundation poll.
Kaiser's monthly tracking poll found that just 35 percent have a favorable view of the health reform being put into place Jan. 1 while 43 percent view it unfavorably. The favorability rating of Obamacare has been worse only once, in October 2011, when it fell to 34 percent.
Not only is the June poll bad news for the president as his administration struggles to have the health reform program ready for people to begin signing up in October, the trend is troubling. Since September 2012, when 45 percent had a favorable view of Obamacare, the drop has been slow, steady and unbroken.
What's more, 40 percent believe that the country will be worse off under Obamacare. Just 31 percent said the nation will be better off. Only once before, in July of 2012, did those polled say the nation will be worse off under the Affordable Care Act when it reached 41 percent.
There is some good news in the poll, however. Democrats like the name. Said Kaiser, "Democrats show the biggest change in favorability with the alternate question wording 73 percent say they have a favorable opinion of 'Obamacare' compared to 58 percent who say the same for the 'health reform law.'"

while support for an alternative, ie single payer, grows?
However the same people would vote that POS back into office again. Just amazing.
“Democrats show the biggest change in favorability with the alternate question wording 73 percent say they have a favorable opinion of ‘Obamacare’ compared to 58 percent who say the same for the ‘health reform law.’”
and that’s why Dumocraps are imbeciles. You could take a steaming pile of excrement and place an obama sticker on it..and only Dumocraps will think it’s a croissant and eat it.
The “folks” must be beginning to fill out the inquisitive forms doctors now must demand of their patients. As that happens, the percentage will drop even lower.
You are exactly right. Lib relative posts nasty meme on Facebook cursing Republican for being against Obamacare. I asked her what she liked about Obamacare. She said didn’t know that much about it. I asked her how she could she support something she didn’t know anything about? She came back later saying, well I looked and they have to cover to age 26 and free birth control. This is an aging feminist in her late 60s. She’ll find out soon enough what O-care has in store for the elderly.
My cousin’s ex wife loves Commiecare..she’s a flaming lib who sits at home all day collecting Govt assistance..taught her daughter to love Obamacare too, even wrote a report on how its so “awesome” now she might have breast cancer hope she enjoys Obamacare now
and their weekly hours haven’t been dropped below the “magic” 32.001 number yet either ... forcing them to be part-time employees ...
All of which calls to mind the opening scenes from the 1970s classic, National Lampoons Vacation. Clark Griswold, planning on taking his clan cross-country to WallyWorld, goes to trade in his old car for a sleek, new car. Instead, hes delivered the Family Truckster a blocky, pea-green horror. As he argues with the saleman intent on making him accept the switch, the salesman remarks:
You may think you hate it now, but just wait until you drive it.
Yup. F Dems. The more they suffer especially with Odumbocare in place next year, I;ll be happy.
