One pollster hypothesized that much of the public pushback of Obamacare in recent years was rooted in the fact that it was branded with former President Barack Obama's name.

During a discussion on Hill.TV, Dan Cox — a research director at the Public Religion Research Institute — said many of the policies contained in the Affordable Care Act are becoming more attractive.

"People liked the Affordable Care Act and a lot of what was in it. They just didn't like the Obama part of ObamaCare, the fact that he was branded with it," Cox said.

"As soon as he's gone, we're in a new administration, healthcare costs keep increasing, a lot of the aspects of that policy are becoming much more attractive."

Republicans tried and failed to repeal and replace Obamacare in 2017, and then took a step back to reassess their healthcare reform strategy.

Healthcare costs and premiums continue to rise, although the Department of Health and Human Services recently said one of the Obamacare plans offered at the silver level will drop in price by 2 percent for 2019.
