Pew/USA Today: Americans Turning to GOP on Health Care

Pew/USA Today: Americans Turning to GOP on Health Care

A new national survey conducted by the Pew Research Center and USA Today between September 4-8 shows that Americans are turning to the Republican Party as the party they trust on health care, normally a Democrat-strong issue. Last December, Democrats were favored by a 48%-38% margin, but now the GOP is ahead 40% to 39%.

In addition, the sizable majority of Americans disapprove of ObamaCare, 53% to 42%. Those opposed to ObamaCare fall into two camps: those who want to do their best to help the law succeed and those who would prefer to see it fail. Of the 53% disapproving, more than half of them, 27% of the overall sample say lawmakers “should do what they can to make the law work as well as possible,” but 23% of the overall sample say lawmakers “should do what they can to make the law fail.”

Within the GOP, 85% of them disapprove of ObamaCare, and 43% of GOP voters or those who lean toward the GOP want lawmakers to let it fail. 37% want to try to make the law succeed. More specifically, 64% of Tea Party Republicans want to see lawmakers let the law fail. Independents disapprove of ObamaCare 58% to 36%.

Only 25% of those polled said they understand ObamaCare; 34% say they either barely understand it or don’t understand it at all. Among blacks, 91% approve of the law; among whites, only 29% approve, with 67% disapproving.
