Poll: Most Americans are tired of Republicans haranguing about Obamacare
If Republicans think their never-ending bugaboo about Obamacare will greatly benefit them in the November elections, they might have another think coming.
The American people generally are weary of it all.
TalkingPointsMemo has the story HERE:
[A] new survey from the Kaiser Family Foundation might bring the GOP’s certainty into question: 53 percent of Americans, including 51 percent of independents, say they’re tired of debating Obamacare and think that the country should focus on other issues.
Even among Republicans, the numbers are almost evenly split: 47 percent are tired of the debate, while 49 percent think it should continue.
Democratic operatives have long told TPM that they’re skeptical about claims that Obamacare will be the defining issue of 2014. The law’s unpopularity surged during HealthCare.gov’s disastrous launch last October, but, as the Kaiser poll indicates, its approval and disapproval ratings are returning to pre-launch levels.
“The only trend we’re seeing in the Obamacare debate is that more and more voter fatigue has set in,” Matt Canter, deputy executive director for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, told TPM earlier this month. “We’re seeing more and more voters say that they are sick and tired of wasting time and energy on this debate.”
