Poll: All-Time High Oppose ObamaCare Individual Mandate
A new Rasmussen poll finds that 58% of voters, an all-time high, oppose ObamaCare’s requirement that every American be covered by health insurance. Last week, for the second month in a row, 51% of respondents also said they think health care will decline because of ObamaCare.
It doesn’t seem to matter whether those who think the quality of health care will decline are insured or not; 50% of insured voters believe it will decline while 45% of uninsured voters agree. Only 19% of respondents think their health care will be better by the end of the year than it is currently, as opposed to 30% who felt that way one year ago.
Those voters who are optimistic about the effect of ObamaCare and think health care will improve as a result total 31%, the highest to date. However, the total number who consider the present health care system to be good or excellent is 34%, which is at the low end of the range between 32% and 43% Rasmussen has found since November of 2012.
