Poll: Most Americans Say People Are Better Off Under Obamacare


A majority of Americans believe that either they themselves or other people are better off under Obamacare, according to a CNN poll released Wednesday.

The poll found that 18 percent of Americans said they are better off under the health care reform law. But even if they said they personally are about the same or worse off, another 35 percent said that other families are better off because of the law.

According to 44 percent of respondents, Obamacare had not helped anyone.

The law’s approval ratings remained under water, with 40 percent approving and 59 percent disapproving. But 17 percent said they disapproved because the law is not liberal enough.

The poll, conducted from July 18 to 20, surveyed 1,012 U.S. adults. Its margin of error is 3 percentage points.
