USA Today-Pew Poll: Disapproval of Obamacare at All-Time High

A new poll rates public opposition to the Affordable Care Act at an all-time high.

According to the numbers from a USA Today/Pew survey, 55 percent of Americans disapprove of the law, the highest total since the ACA was signed into law in 2010. Forty-one percent support it.

Forty-nine percent of those surveyed think the major provisions of Obamacare are "here to stay," while 43 percent think they will be erased from the law. Sixty-seven percent of the people who support the law think its major provisions are "here to stay."

With the Obama administration saying that more than 8 million Americans signed up for healthcare through the law from October to the middle of April, a Gallup-Healthways report showed that the estimated percentage of Americans without healthcare — 13.4 percent — is the lowest since that statistic was first tracked in 2008.

With public support for Obamacare teetering on the edge, however, healthcare will be a key issue in the midterm elections this fall.

"Obviously, Republicans don't like Obamacare, which is not surprising since not a single Republican voted for it," Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell told Newsmax last month.

"But much more importantly, independent voters — the swing voters, those that go back and forth and decide every election — also don't like Obamacare," he said.

"For them, it's going to be a big — if not the decisive — issue in how they cast their vote this fall."
