Poll: Majority Of Americans Still Oppose Obamacare

Three years after its enactment, a majority of Americans say they continue to oppose Obamacare, according to a new CNN/ORC International poll.

The survey, released Monday, found that 54 percent said they oppose the health care reform law while 43 percent said they support it.

Thirty-five percent said they oppose Obamacare because it’s too liberal; 16 percent said they oppose it because it’s not liberal enough.

“Not surprisingly, the Obama coalition is most supportive of Obamacare,” CNN Polling Director Keating Holland said. “A majority of younger Americans favor the new health care law; support among other age groups falls as low as 31% among senior citizens. Only a third of whites support the law, compared to six in 10 non-whites. Obamacare also wins majority support in urban areas and in the Northeast, the bluest region of the country.”

The poll, conducted May 17-18, just after House Republicans voted to repeal the law, surveyed 923 adults across the country and has a margin of error of plus or minus three percentage points.
