Poll: Independent Voters Back Anti-Obamacare Candidates By 25 Points
A devastating new poll finds that Independent voters overwhelmingly back candidates who oppose Obamacare by a 25% margin (54% to 29%).
The Fox News poll, released on Monday, also found that the general electorate backs anti-Obamacare candidates by 14% (53% to 39%).
Nearly one in five voters (19%) said a congressional candidate's position on Obamacare will be the "single most important factor" driving their voting decision.
A full 51% of those polled said 20 years from now Obamacare will be seen as "one of the worst" things President Barack Obama did as president, a sentiment with which even one in five Democrats agreed. Just 37% said Obamacare will be seen as "one of the best" things Obama accomplished.
Democrats continue to scramble to distance themselves from the unpopular Obamacare program heading into the Nov. 4 midterm elections.
Democrat Rep. Stephen Lynch (D-MA) said last week that Democrats "will lose seats in the House" and "may lose the Senate... primarily because of health care."
