This Just In: Obamacare Is Still Pretty Unpopular


The hell you say!

(The Hill) Attitudes toward ObamaCare have only changed slightly despite the administration’s success in enrolling more than eight million people, according to a Gallup poll released Thursday.

The poll found 43 percent approve of ObamaCare, but a majority disapproves of it. (WT-the disapproval number is 51%)

A Department of Health and Human Services report released in early May confirmed more than eight million people have enrolled.

Of course, at least 6 million had lost their health insurance plans thanks to Obamacare. Furthermore, we learn from Gallup itself

Fewer than four in 10 adults (37%) say the law will ultimately make the healthcare situation better in the U.S., consistent with past measures. A plurality of Americans (44%) say it will make things worse, and another 16% say it won’t make much of a difference.

So, a majority think it will make healthcare worse. 16% think it will make no change. Millions have lost their insurance. A midline estimate from Team O itself estimates 90 million more will lose their plans. Deductibles and premiums are up, and are expected to go much higher. The economy is being damaged. It’s costing massive amounts of taxpayer money. All for a measly 37% thinking it will make things better.

The numbers should not be surprising. They’ve been negative towards Ocare since before it was passed, and continues to be negative. An AP-GFK poll last week found that “Forty-three percent oppose the law, compared with just 28 percent in support.”

Of course, Nancy Pelosi wants single payer. Because Ocare is working so well.
