Poll: Most Americans disapprove of Obamacare

A poll shows that most Americans disapprove of the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare.

According to Gallup, 49% of Americans disapprove of Obamacare while 41% favor it. An additional 11% have no opinion.

Health insurance exchanges open nationwide on October 1st.

These results come from an Aug. 17-18, 2013, Gallup poll.

Gallup also reported that more Americans are pessimistic than optimistic about the future impact of the law. Less than a quarter believe it will make their family’s healthcare situation better, while 38% say it will make it worse. When asked about the law’s impact on the healthcare situation in the U.S., 35% say it will make the situation better, while 44% say it will make it worse. Americans’ views are essentially the same as they were in June.

To make matters worse for the White House, Gallup reported that 3 in 10 Americans are not familiar with the Affordable Care Act – despite efforts to educate the public – and the more familiar they are with the law, the less likely they are to support it.

In March 2010, President Obama signed comprehensive health reform, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA), into law. The law aims to make preventive care—including family planning and related services—more accessible and affordable for many Americans.  While some provisions of the law have already taken effect, many more provisions will be implemented in the coming years.  Learn more about the ACA here.
