The most recent public polling on topics such as the popularity of the healthcare law, its impact on the medical profession, health costs, and more.
Kaiser Health– This month’s Kaiser Health Tracking Poll finds public opinion of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) continues to be almost evenly split, with 43 percent reporting a favorable view and 42 percent reporting an unfavorable view. The share with a favorable view exceeds the share with an unfavorable view for the first time since November 2012, albeit by one percentage point, and the difference is within the survey’s margin of sampling error and is not statistically significant.
Kaiser Family Foundation: This month’s Kaiser Family Foundation tracking poll finds that 43 percent of Americans have a favorable view of the health care law, while 42 percent have an unfavorable one — the first time since 2012 that the law has been in positive territory. That difference is not considered statistically significant.
The Foundation for Government Accountability commissioned a poll of 1,564 voters in the 34 states using
the HealthCare.gov federal ObamaCare exchange that could be impacted by the Supreme Court’s
forthcoming King v. Burwell decision.
Voters view ObamaCare as having done more harm than good. They blame Congress for a poorly written
law and they expect Congress to fix it. And they want those fixes to help everyone, not just those getting
subsidies. They want those changes to make sense: more choices, the ability to buy insurance any time,
and subsidies that follow people, not just exchange plans.
Real Clear Politics– 42% Approve, 52% Disapprove of the health care law.
