Americans Are Still Divided On Obamacare
Meanwhile, the public is still deeply divided in its support for Obamacare, according to the latest polls from the Kaiser Family Foundation. There has been a recent shift in views with 48 percent of people favoring Obamacare compared to 42 percent who find it unfavorable. That level of support has not been seen in over 60 Kaiser Family Foundation polls conducted since 2010 and it has been driven by a change in views among independents. Despite that change in support, the public is also divided on what lawmakers should do regarding the 2010 law. 47 percent are in favor of Congress repealing it while 48 percent want Obamacare to remain.
This chart shows the % of people with a favorable/unfavorable view of the Affordable Care Act from 2010 to 2017.
