Poll: 54% Of Americans Support Obamacare
While Congressional Republicans are moving quickly to push their "repeal & replace" of the Affordable Care Act (also known as "Obamacare"), a new poll shows the 2010 health care legislation has hit it's highest level of support yet.
According to Pew Research, 54% approve of the health care law passed seven years ago by Barack Obama and Congress, while 43% disapprove
This past December, the numbers were much closer - 48% approved versus 47% disapproved.
Of course, the results fall right down partisan divisions: Democrats show 85% approval for the ACA, while Republicans disapprove to the tune of 89%.
A slight majority of Independents (53%) approve, with 45% giving a thumbs down.
