Health Care: ObamaCare was supposed to be a gift to the uninsured. Maybe someone should have checked with them first. A new poll finds the uninsured hate ObamaCare more than any other group.
The Economist/YouGov poll asked the public a series of questions about ObamaCare, and then broke down the findings based on their insurance status.
As with many other polls, this one finds widespread disapproval of the law. Fully 43% say it's a failure, compared with just 25% who think it has been a success. Nearly one in five say it's been "a complete failure"...
But ObamaCare isn't even terribly popular among those who gained coverage after 2013 — those who should be singing its praises.
The poll found that an almost equal share say it's been a failure as rate it a success (29% vs. 30%). A quarter actually want it repealed, while just over half want it kept the same or expanded.
More remarkable still is the fact that the uninsured are the most hostile to ObamaCare. The poll found that 50% of this group wants ObamaCare repealed (compared with 42% overall).
