According to the report only 23% of likely U.S. Voters view Obamacare as a success so far. Twice as many (46%) describe the health care law as a failure, and 29%, say it's somewhere in between. Interestingly the number remains low across all demographics except for African-Americans and Democrats.
Furthermore the number of people who deem Obamacare a success is low even amongst the demographics the bill supposedly helps the most. Amongst women only 20% consider it a success, seniors aged 65+ only 21%, household income >$30K only 26%, and income between $30-50K only 17%.
Given the problems with the new law, a plurality (44%) of voters still believes Congress and the president should repeal it and start over again. Nearly as many (39%) think they should go through the law piece by piece to improve it. Just 15% say they should leave the law as it is.
Sixty-two percent (62%) of voters believe it is at least somewhat likely that the health care law will be repealed if Republicans win control of Congress in the November elections. Twenty-nine percent (29%) consider repeal unlikely. This includes 32% who think repeal is Very Likely if the GOP takes charge of Congress and just six percent (6%) who feel it is Not At All Likely.Despite the administration’s announcement that it hit the 7.1 million number , 58% of voters have an unfavorable opinion of the health care law, and 53% believe the law will result in poorer heath care for them and their families. That’s the highest level of unhappiness since mid-November when news reports were focusing on the troubled rollout of the new law.
It looks as if the President has a long, long way to go to gain support for Obamacare.
