One in every three Americans has been hurt by Obamacare, according to a new poll.

The Rasmussen Reports survey says that 33 percent of likely U.S. voters have suffered a "negative personal impact" due to President Barack Obama’s healthcare law. The figure has increased by 4 percentage points from 29 percent earlier this year.

The same percentage, 33 percent, have seen changes in their coverage under the Affordable Care Act, according to a survey of 1,000 voters conducted Feb. 28 to March 1. The poll had a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.

Rasmussen says that 56 percent of Americans regard the new law unfavorably, including 16 percent who view it "very unfavorably."

Only 40 percent have a "somewhat favorable" opinion of Obamacare, while just 14 percent of Americans feel that they have been helped in some form by the law.

Forty-seven percent of Republican voters say they have been personally hurt by Obamacare, compared to 19 percent of Democrats and 35 percent of independents.
