Obamacare support drops to 26% in new AP poll…

If Republicans win big in November, due in large part to Obamacare, I think it’ll be possible to repeal this thing in 2015, especially with such a low approval rate:

THE HILL – Support of for the healthcare law stands at 26 percent in a poll conducted by The Associated Press.

The AP-GFK poll released Friday showed little change from a January AP poll that found 27 percent of the public supported the law.

Opposition to the law stands at 43 percent. Opposition peaked shortly after the law’s passage in 2010 at 50 percent.
The AP poll finds that, while support for the law has diminished in the last few years, opposition hasn’t drastically increased. That is because a large section of the public, 30 percent, now say they neither support nor oppose the law. That number stood at 14 percent when the law was first signed.

The poll surveyed 1,012 people online and has a 3.4-percent margin of error.

    At first glance at the title I thought it read that obama’s support was down to 26 percent. I was going to remark that it shouldn’t be that high!!! And neither should the Unaffordable Health Care Act support be that high…it should be around 1-2 percent.

      I’m doing a project about women who won’t sign up for obamacare, would you mind answering a few questions?!? #please! @ktbrooks (on twitter) TWEET ME!

  • And you have to wonder how pollsters are fudging the numbers to get it up to even this high of an approval rating.

  • badbadlibs

    And we wonder why the left is on an all out assault trying to convince people not to believe their eyes.
    If this poll is at 26%, wonder what the internal polls are telling the criminals in the WH?

    Imagine if the Republicans crammed such a massive debacle down the throats of the American people. We would be in a daily national trauma with the MSM.

      We would be embroiled in a civil war right now. The Libtards get violent when things don’t go their way.

    What moron segment of our population “neither supports nor opposes” the law?!?

    THAT is the stat that frightens/pi$$es me off the most.

      The Low Information Voters. They hear nothing, they speak nothing, they see nothing and they definitely know nothing, except maybe who’s doing what to whom on “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills”.

        My words exactly… so true! Sad too…

  • armyvet10

    The nice thing about telling the truth, it is much easier to defend and remember. Lies on the other hand regularly need more lies to defend it which in turn has to have more lies to defend the new lies that defend the original lie. (just ask Harry Ried, who is now having to defend himself about calling people liars and is on the defense by lying about calling people liars) The truth may not be pretty, but knowing it allows a person to stand on solid ground, and what direction to travel. There is a reason that when you take the stand in a court case you are asked to swear to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help you God. Poverty is a truth, those that have less than most are poor. Those that have no health insurance are uninsured. These are truths, but the lie that was sold as the ACA, has required more lies to keep up the 1st lie. We do need health care reform, but the big lie of Obama care isn’t what we needed and only the idiots who keep telling the lie of it in order to save face should be required to live and die with it.

    (warning … RANT ahead … )

    Hey barry!

    Get out on the Campaign Trail, LIAR-in-Chief!

    go on, you FRAUD – get out there and tell Americans how GREAT you are, how GREAT your stinkin Obamacare BULLSCHMIDT is!

    this FOUL STENCH has taken The LIAR under 40% fav and he is sinking his lapdog DEM enablers with him …. DESPITE his lefty pals in the lamestream media still trying to PROP UP the Phoney and his DESTRUCTIVE law ……………. yeah …couldn’t have happened to a nicer bunch of COMMIES!

    it was REALLY FOOLISH to ignore the CLEAR WILL of WE The People back in 2009/2010 and RAM this BULLSCHMIDT through by ‘deeming’, was it not?

    if the DEMs are wise, a new Leader with some kind of credibility still intact, will call for the JFK wing of the DEMs to RISE UP

    let the SOFTENING UP of the CORRUPT LAWLESS LIAR (AKA Obamacare PUNCHING BAG) continue …… and then that Benghazi Truth Train can pull out from the Hick’s Station where it is quietly steaming, again … nearly 2/3 of the Public want the investigation to continue …

    if that gutless Speaker Boehner persists in REFUSING to convene a Select Committee (trying to protect his own hide?) to UNCOVER the TRUTH, then *WE The People* will get him REPLACED

    The Obamacare BULLSCHMIDT and other scandals will soften up this LAWLESS LYING PHONEY, but I believe the cold-blooded TREACHERY at Benghazi will politically DECAPITATE him, and his LAWLESS Regime … including the Kallous Killary Klinton …

    DEO VOLENTE ~> May the TRUTH which sets FREE…. PREVAIL

    It would drop to zero support if Obozo didn’t keep delaying implementation.

  • Stehekin912

    Opposition 43% and those that neither support nor oppose 30%? Sheesh! Why isn’t everyone adamantly opposing it? Makes no sense

    Yeah, we’d have to have some heavy duty numbers to repeal it over Obama.
