Public opposition to the new healthcare reform law continues to grow. The latest poll by the Kaiser Family Foundation and the Harvard School of Public Health shows that opposition to Obamacare rose to 50 percent this month from 41 percent in December, Politico reports.

Obamacare, opposition, poll, recordJanuary marks the highest level of opposition since Kaiser began asking the question every month in April.

To be sure, only 33 percent of Americans support the idea of defunding the legislation, and 62 percent oppose that idea. So Republicans have a difficult task navigating between an unpopular law and the public’s lack of support for their effort to repeal it piece by piece.

“The public is frustrated with politics as usual and may be saying that defunding a law is not how government should work,” says Mollyann Brodie, senior vice president and director of the Kaiser Family Foundation’s public opinion and survey research group.
