WaPo/ABC poll: Support for Obamacare at all-time high
Despite all the endless lies and all the ridiculous alarmism about creeping socialism and the end of American freedom as we know it, the Affordable Care Act is here to stay and an increasing number of Americans are fine with that.
I suppose we can expect the demagogues to double-down, but THIS is the situation at present:
For the first time, the Washington Post-ABC News poll has found more Americans support Obamacare than oppose it.
The poll, released Monday, the law’s enrollment deadline, found 49 percent of Americans support the law and 48 percent oppose it. It was the first time, dating back to August 2009, that support outweighed opposition in the poll.
Support among Democrats jumped from 65 percent in January to 76 percent in the new poll. Independents (44 percent support; 54 percent oppose; and Republicans (20 percent support; 78 percent) was more stable, according to the poll. Surprisingly, the poll found a significant shift in support for the law among conservatives, with 36 percent of them backing it now compared to 17 percent in November.
