A majority of Americans oppose the healthcare legislative centerpiece of Barack Obama’s presidency, including a significant chunk of responders who say that Obamacare is too liberal, says a new CNN poll
Fifty-four percent of those polled oppose Obamacare, while 43 percent of those polled say they support the law as it stands. Both numbers are relatively unchanged since the bill was passed in 2010.
Of those polled, 35 percent say the policy is too liberal while 16 percent say it’s not liberal enough.
"Not surprisingly, the Obama coalition is most supportive of Obamacare," says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland. "A majority of younger Americans favor the new healthcare law; support among other age groups falls as low as 31 percent among senior citizens. Only a third of whites support the law, compared to six in 10 non-whites. Obamacare also wins majority support in urban areas and in the Northeast, the bluest region of the country."
The CNN/ORC International poll released Monday was conducted on May 17 and 18 and comes on the heels of a House vote won by Republicans to repeal the contentious law. The poll included the views of 923 adults with a margin of error of three percent.
