Republicans seek to make use of growing opposition to the Affordable Care Act against incumbent Democrats in swing congressional districts next year.

The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) shared polls with Politico showing that almost 50 percent of voters in two such districts — Minnesota's 8th and New Hampshire's 1st — believe Obamacare will worsen their healthcare quality.

In the Minnesota district, 48 percent of voters think their healthcare will suffer as a result of Obamacare, while only 14 percent think it will improve. In the New Hampshire district, 49 percent expect their healthcare to worsen, and 19 percent believe it will get better.

"Our polling confirms Obamacare is a ticking time bomb for House Democrats," NRCC spokeswoman Andrea Bozek told Politico

A Washington Post-ABC News poll, conducted July 18-21, shows that support for Obamacare among moderate and conservative Democrats has dropped to 46 percent from 57 percent a year ago and 74 percent just after the law was passed in 2010.

"Voter concerns about Obamacare are going to make this a prevalent issue in almost any competitive House district next year," Brock McCleary, who conducted the surveys for the NRCC, told Politico
