The latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll says that Obamacare is now more unpopular than at any time since the Democrats passed it into law (without a single Republican vote) more than three years ago. The poll shows that, by a margin of 13 percentage points (47 to 34 percent), Americans think Obamacare is a “bad idea,” rather than a “good idea.” Minus-13 points is the worst net approval rating that Obamacare has posted in the ten NBC News/Wall St. Journal polls taken post-passage. Among those who feel “strongly” (either way), Obamacare’s net approval rating is even a bit worse — minus-15 points (41 to 26 percent).
health careThe poll registered these results despite the fact that only 19 percent of its respondents were Republicans, while 30 percent were Democrats.
