Obamacare, a Bigger Worry Than the Sequester

After the 2016 questions, the Quinnipiac pollsters ask Pennsylvania voters what they think of Obamacare, a.k.a. the Affordable Care Act.

A total of 53 percent of Pennsylvania voters “somewhat disapprove” or “strongly disapprove” of the 2010 Affordable Care Act, while 37 percent “strongly approve” or “somewhat approve.” 

ACA will hurt them personally 40 percent of voters say, while 13 percent say it will help and 42 percent say it will have no effect.  There is little difference among income groups.

Compare this to recent national polling on views of the sequester:

Nearly half — 49 percent — of registered voters said the current cuts will have no impact at all on them or their families. Another 39 percent said the cuts would have a negative impact, and 10 percent said they would have a positive impact.
