Obamacare: Americans Oppose it but Want it to Stay

Bloomberg: “Fifty-three percent of Americans oppose the law, even as the proportion of those saying it should be repealed has dropped to 32 percent, a Bloomberg National Poll shows.”

Americans’ views on the Affordable Care Act, a.k.a. Obamacare:

“Several of the Affordable Care Act’s provisions do enjoy modest to robust popularity. That suggests Republicans may also need to update their message from the calls for repeal in the 2010 and 2012 elections, if they want to appeal to voters beyond their party’s base.”

“Fifty-six percent favor keeping Obamacare with perhaps ‘small modifications,’ while 10 percent would leave it as is. That’s the highest level of acceptance yet in a Bloomberg poll.”

“Even among Republicans, the proportion of those who want to see the law abolished has dropped significantly. Only a modest majority — 56 percent — want repeal, down from 67 percent in a Bloomberg poll taken in July 2010.”
