Poll: 14% Believe The Supreme Court Has Already Overturned Health Care Law

A remarkable 14 percent of Americans believe the Supreme Court has already struck down the Affordable Care Act, according to a new Kaiser Family Foundation poll.

The high court is scheduled to hear oral arguments on the case later this month and likely render a decision by the end of June.

The Kaiser survey also found that, as consistent with other polls, most Americans (51 percent) believe the law’s requirement that Americans purchase insurance is unconstitutional. Just 28 percent deem it constitutional, and the rest don’t have an opinion.

Roughly similar numbers (53 percent to 33 percent) expect the Supreme Court to overturn the law.
