Today’s Supreme Court ruling upholding President Barack Obama’s healthcare law will give the president an advantage in the race for the White House, says Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.

“You can hear the sigh of relief at the White House,” said Brown. “The decision will certainly be a plus for President Barack Obama’s re-election because it allows the president’s signature achievement to stand. Since politics is the ultimate zero-sum game, what’s good for Obama is bad for Gov. Mitt Romney.

“The decision, however, will allow Romney to continue campaigning against the law and promising to repeal it.”

A Quinnipiac University national survey April 20 showed 51 percent of American voters in favor of Congress repealing the 2010 healthcare law. The Supreme Court should overturn the Affordable Care Act, 49 percent of voters said, while 38 percent were in favor of the court upholding the law.

An April 19 Quinnipiac University poll found that U.S. voters viewed the two men equally on handling healthcare.
