Most Americans Believe Politics Will Dictate Obamacare Ruling

Wednesday, 11 Apr 2012 09:28 AM

More than half of Americans believe the Supreme Court justices will decide the constitutionality of Obamacare based on their politics, not the law.

A new Washington Post-ABC News poll found that 50 percent of Americans believe the political leanings of the justices will decide the case, while 40 percent believe the ruling will be based on law.

Belief that the court will rule on politics is also divided by politics. Republicans believe the court will rule on the basis of law by a margin of 58 to 33 percent and liberal Democrats believe the court will rule on the basis of politics.

Over half of independents think the court will rule on the basis of politics, the Post reported.

The findings follow three days of oral arguments on the constitutionality of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care act last month.

The poll also found that 38 percent would like the entire law thrown out, 29 percent would like the requirement that individuals buy insurance struck but let the rest of the law stand, and 25 percent would like the entire law to stand.

The survey polled 1,103 adults April 5-8 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percent.
