Just kidding. I think you could safely say that American’s view on anything that can be politicized is mixed and be accurate.
The article, actually titled Americans’ View of Obamacare Remains Mixed comes from the Health Insurance Exchange website.
A monthly tracking poll of 1,504 adults conducted April 15-21 — after open enrollment closed — by Kaiser Health Tracking Poll found that 54% believe enrollment fell short of the government’s expectations, while 21% believe it met expectations. Further, just 43% were able to identify that almost 8 million people have signed up for coverage.
Compared to the March tracking poll, conducted while open enrollment was still in action, Americans’ view of the law remains unchanged with 46% of the public having a unfavorable view and 38% a favorable view. Along party lines, three-quarters of Republicans have an unfavorable view as compared to two-thirds of Democrats viewing it favorably.
Overall, more than half (57%) say that there have been so many problems since the law’s rollout that it’s clear ACA is not working as planned, while 38% say the law is basically working as planned. The other 5% is believed neither/didn’t know/or refused to answer.
So . . . Someone actually paid for a survey to figure out what most Americans already know. If you lean to the left, you see Obamacare as a success. If you lean to the right, you see it as a gigantic mess. Why doesn’t someone do a survey and ask some meaningful questions? I’m still waiting to find out how many of the 8 million signups transferred out of existing policies and how many are no to the insurance rolls. If anyone has seen that information will you please let me know where to find it?
