New poll shows Obamacare support at 26%

obamacare R cc

Given that about 30% of the American population will support President Obama no matter what he does this is a very interesting number. Obamacare support is eroding at its core now. 26% is an ugly, ugly polling number.

Wow. Those backward “teabaggers” were right.

This is an amazing time in politics.

For those of you ripping on Obama and the left just remember that Bush and the right gave us the Patriot Act and they started they bailouts for millionaires and billionaries that are "too big to fail".

Both parties are shills for the establishment.  To try to claim that one party sucks less than the other is pointless.

They couldn't even get it RIGHT on the roll out, surely you seriously cannot think the implementation will go RIGHT!

Moerland, you are a fucking idiot! No matter what pole you look at, it is obvious the majority don't want anything to do with it. If you do, you are a treasonous communist that embraces. Agenda 21, One world Govt. govt. controlled & run health care & the economic & political subjugation of America in your commie Nirvana. As such your opinion doesn't mean shit so go to hell & shut up!

people wanna bitch about healthcare not being fair .....life is not fair....if it were we'd all be doctors and lawyers and no one would build houses or grill your fast food.....its not fair that a lion kills and eats a gazelle....but it is the pecking order....and if aca is so great then why does "king obama" and his crew of idiots not have to have it? lets face it for the libtards on here....you'd cut your own arm off to try and heal your finger. long term effects are: obamacare will collapse under the weight of its own debt.

You can always count on teabaggers posting stupid stories like this any time a poll comes in low. The average approval for ACA is 38.6%. The single poll that was at 26% had an inordinately large number of non-respondents, the total respondents that support and don't support is only at 69%. Similar polls show support at 40 and 42% with a total of 96% of responses for or against. The same poll shows that only 43% do not support it. http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/other/obama_and_democrats_health_care_plan-1130.html

Hi Shaughn Beck, so my premium went up 30% and my deductible doubled on my plan from my job. Is that an acceptable part of the ACA? I have had the same plan for six years and never had such an increase. In fact, this years increase is larger that all of the prior increases in total. We were promised up to a $2500 savings.

lower premiums are on the exchange and the companies get their money from the premiums , insurance rates always go up yearly but they are now lower than they would have been without the law, if you don't like the plan you chose then choose another plan

26% apparently support incompetence, parasitism and out of control government.

Sally, most of the Libertarian crowd would gladly send this friend of yours to a euthanasia center, because taking care of him might result in some corporate CEO having to wait an extra hour to buy his third private jet.

Sure Christopher, let's deregulate the medical sector. What's the worst that could happen? Oh, that's right, this. But hey, these people weren't corporate CEOs and they had no country club membership, so you libertarians don't give two whoops about them. They should have worked harder, right? http://www.chm.bris.ac.uk/motm/thalidomide/first_pic.jpg

AP was reliable until corporate fascists took it over... and if you can't see that most Americans support the ACA, you're blinded by Fox lies...

we should have universal care since health care is a humanitarian service and not a business, get that straight. We already have medicare which we pay for, by the way, and it would be well put to use to expand it. Obviouosly you listen to propaganda by the right wingers who serve their paymasters, the insurance companies, medical association, big pharma. Obamacare is an attempt at least to bring care to those who have not been able to afford it or shut out because they were already ill. You believe in the sayingL Your money or your life. And please don't get all snarky defensive.

Twain said there were 3 kind of lies. One was statistics. In red states this stat would not surprise. In blue states where the ACA is treated and handled and perceived differently, this is pure bulshit. And so are the folk who bankroll this "newsfeed"
