ObamaCare Sinking in the Polls

“Nearly all of the gains Democrats have made in public approval of the health-care overhaul since it passed in March have been washed away, according to the Kaiser Health Tracking Poll for August,” Politico’s Mike Allen reports. According to the Kaiser poll, Americans are about evenly divided on health reform this month, with 43 percent holding favorable views of the new law and 45 percent unfavorable views. This represents a 7-percent drop in support from July, and a 10-percent uptick in opposition.

It’s worth noting that the Kaiser poll has in general shown greater public support for ObamaCare than other polls — yet even Kaiser shows that opposition to President Obama’s signature domestic achievement is higher (and more intense) than support.
