During Saturday morning’s taping of ESPN’s College GameDay, a fan held up a “Stanford Supports Obamacare” sign to insult the Cardinal football team, symbolizing how unpopular President Barack Obama’s healthcare law is even on college campuses in Southern California.
ESPN was in Los Angeles at USC’s campus in McCarthy Quad before Saturday night’s Pac-12 showdown between the fourth-ranked Cardinal and the Trojans. Fans at GameDay tapings are known to hold up a variety of creative signs mocking their opponents, and it seems like a Trojan fan believed Obamacare, the president’s unpopular signature piece of legislation, is so unpopular that support for it can be used as an insult.
Obama apologized for lying to Americans about being able to keep their insurance plans and last week announced an administrative fix to allow those who have had their plans cancelled to get them back for another year. Obama’s approval ratings have plummeted to record lows while Republicans have erased the nine-point advantage Democrats had on the generic congressional ballot to tie Democrats on that ballot since Obamacare went into effect in October.
