Approval Of Obamacare Among Moderate Democrats Is Dropping
Veronique de Rugy
We were told that people would learn to like Obamacare once it was passed. That doesn’t appear to be case. In fact, even moderate Democrats are less likely to approve of the law now than when it was passed. The Washington Posthas the story and the numbers:
The shift among the Democratic party’s large swath in the ideological middle– most Democrats in this poll, 57 percent, identify as moderate or conservative – is driving an overall drop in party support for the legislation: Just 58 percent of Democrats now support the law, down from 68 percent last year and the lowest since the law was enacted in 2010. This broader drop mirrors tracking surveys by the non-partisan Kaiser Family Foundation and Fox News polls, both of which found Democratic support falling earlier this year.
