Voters in a dozen top battleground states overwhelmingly say that Obamacare may hurt their families in the long run.

More than half — or 53 percent — of the registered voters surveyed in swing states said that they thought it was a “bad thing” that Congress passed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, according to a new USA Today/Gallup Poll.

Nationally, some 50 percent of those surveyed said that passage of the law was a “bad thing” while 42 percent said it was a “good thing.” Some 38 percent of swing state voters said passage of the law was a “good thing.”

Moreover, some 42 percent of swing state voters and 41 percent of voters nationwide said that Obamacare will make things worse for their family, while only 20 percent said it would make things better.

Asked how the new law has affected them and their families, most of the voters — 72 percent in swing states and 69 percent nationally — said the law has had no effect.

Interestingly, some 15 percent of voters in swing states and 17 percent nationally say the law has hurt them as compared to only 11 percent in swing states and nationally that said it helped them, according to the findings.

The poll of 1,137 registered voters in the swing states was conducted between Feb. 14-21, while the nationwide poll was taken of 881 registered voters between Feb. 20-21 with a margin of error of plus or minus four points.
