Growing Percentage In U.S. Opposes Obamacare Repeal
The charts above are made from the newly released Bloomberg News Poll (taken between June 6th and 9th of a random national sample of 1,005 adults, with a 3.1 point margin of error).
These charts show why many Republicans are starting to abandon the idea of repealing Obamacare -- especially after they are through with the GOP primary. While 53% of the public say they oppose Obamacre, only 42% say it is because Obamacare went too far in changing the health care system. The other 11% who say they oppose it do so because they don't think it went far enough in reforming the system -- and this 11% certainly don't want to go backwards by repealing the reform.
In fact, only 32% of the 42% who say Obamacare went too far actually want to repeal it. The other 10% now join those who want to keep the reform and make it better. And that is the opinion of most American now. A whopping 66% (two out of every three Americans) now say the effort to repeal should stop. About 56% want to keep the system and make minor changes to make it better, and 10% want to keep Obamacare just as it is.
This is the largest percentage yet in any poll opposing the repeal of Obamacare. It shows that as the people become more comfortable with the new system, and more knowledgeable about it, they are ready to accept it and move on to trying to make it even better. It also show that it would be a mistake to campaign on repealing Obamacare.
This has to be very disappointing for the GOP. They had been hoping this would be the issue that could put them over the top in the coming election.
