Poll: 56 Percent Want ‘Obamacare’ Opponents To Move On

A clear majority of Americans think opponents of the Affordable Care Act should not try to block the law’s implementation, a new poll shows.  

According to the latest survey from Kaiser Family Foundation, conducted by Princeton Survey Research Associates, 56 percent believe that detractors to the law widely known as “Obamacare” should move on to tackle the nation’s other problems, compared with only 38 percent who believe they should continue their efforts to block the law from being implemented. 

Forty-seven percent of respondents in Kaiser’s poll approve of the Supreme Court’s ruling last week to uphold the health care law, while 43 percent disapprove.  A comparable divide in public opinion appeared in a Monday poll from CNN, which showed that 50 percent of Americans agree with the high court’s ruling and 49 percent disagree.
