Despite its glitches, Obamacare is far more popular than congressional Republicans
No matter how you slice it, Americans are much more supportive of the Affordable Care Act than they are of the Republicans in Congress who are so foolishly obsessed with repealing or obstructing the measure.
Indeed, a majority of Americans either support Obamacare or say it isn’t liberal enough.
Consider THESE FINDINGS in the latest CNN poll:
According to the survey, 54% say it’s a bad thing that the GOP controls the House, up 11 points from last December, soon after the 2012 elections when the Republicans kept control of the chamber. Only 38% say it’s a good thing the GOP controls the House, a 13-point dive from the end of last year…
According to the survey, 44% also say they have more confidence in Obama rather than the GOP in Congress to deal with the major issues facing the country today, a 5-point drop from last year; 31% say they have more confidence in congressional Republicans…
According to the poll, just more than four in 10 say they favor the law [Obamacare], with 56% opposed to it.
But of those opposed, 38% say they are against the law because they think it’s too liberal and 12% say it’s not liberal enough. That means that 53% either support Obamacare, or say it’s not liberal enough.
The health care numbers are little changed from late last month, just before the start of the shutdown.
