Record Disproval For Obamacare, Despite White House Enrollment Claims

Record Disproval For Obamacare, Despite White House Enrollment Claims

The Administration of President Barack Obama recently bragged that it had surpassed its goal of enrolling 7 million Americans in Obamacare by signing up 8.1 million people. But a poll released Monday illustrates that, despite the White House’s spin, the healthcare overhaul is increasingly unpopular.

The numbers, out from Pew and USA Today, indicate that a record 55 percent of Americans disprove of the healthcare overhaul, up from 53 percent who disproved of the law before its September launch. Forty-three percent approve of the law.

While a majority of Democrats continue to express support for Obamacare, 24 percent disprove. Among independent voters, 57 percent would like to see Obamacare scrapped.

From the poll:

As in earlier surveys, opposition to the law is more intense than support: 43% of the public disapproves of the law very strongly and 11% disapprove of it not so strongly. By comparison, 26% approve of the law very strongly while 13% approve of it not so strongly.

Republicans and Republican leaners who agree with the Tea Party have a particularly negative assessment of the law. Almost all Tea Party Republicans (97%) disapprove of the law and about nine-in-ten (91%) disapprove very strongly. Among non-Tea Party Republicans, 83% disapprove and 67% disapprove very strongly.

The growing disapproval of Obamacare is already on the minds of vulnerable Democrats up for re-election in 2014, some of whom have sprinkled their campaigns with anti-Obamacare rhetoric.
