Rasmussen Poll Shows Majority of Americans Are Against Obamacare
American voter uproar over Obamacare has never been higher.
According to a new Rasmussen phone poll released Monday, 58 percent of voters surveyed are strongly against the new government requirement that they carry health insurance.
The numbers illustrate just what a train wreck (words used by Montana Democratic Senator, Max Backus, one of the authors of the health plan) the Affordable Care Law has become for the Obama administration.
It is also the second consecutive month that 51 percent of insured voters and 45 percent of uninsured voters said they think overall quality of healthcare will decline because of Obamacare.
As the survey was released, the Obama spin people have attempted to change the discussion in Washington from the Obamacare fiasco to their version of redistribution of the nation's wealth while blaming the Republicans for the continuing stagnant economy.
It seems at present the strategy is reaching deaf ears throughout the electorate.
Most voters also intensely dislike Obamacare and fully expect it to steeply increase healthcare costs. In addition, only 19 percent of respondents think their healthcare will improve by the end of 2014.
That number was at 30 percent one year ago.
It should be noted that the midterm elections will occur two months before the end of this year - something Democrats (especially those running for re-election) are fully aware of.
Shockingly for the Obama administration and Democrats running in 2014 shows only 34 percent of voters consider the current healthcare system to be good or excellent, according to Rasmussen.
The survey of 1,000 likely voters was conducted last Saturday.
