Study: Just a Third of Uninsured Americans Hold Positive View of Obamacare
By Meghan Foley
In terms of support, the survey conducted by The Wall Street Journal in conjunction with NBC News found that 54 percent of respondents thought the health care reform was a bad idea while 31 percent said it was a good idea, a figure virtually unchanged from the July survey. Similarly, 53 percent told Pew Research and USA Today that they disapproved of the law and 42 percent said they approved. That compares to the 47 percent who approved of the legislation and 43 percent who disapproved of it in July 2012, shortly after the Supreme Court upheld most provisions of the Affordable Care Act. More interestingly, Pew found more intense opposition than support for Obamacare, with 41 percent strongly disapproving it and 26 percent strongly approving it.
