Obamacare Still Struggles In Court of Public Opinion

Despite its recent victory in the U.S. Supreme Court, the president’s health care law is still disliked by most voters who expect it to worsen the quality of care and make it more expensive.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 42% of Likely U.S. Voters share a favorable opinion of the law, with 20% who view it Very Favorably. Fifty-three percent (53%) view Obamacare unfavorably, including 37% with a Very Unfavorable opinion. These findings are consistent with surveying for several years.
