Poll: Only 36 percent of Americans support the ACA
A recent NBC/Wall Street Journal poll found that only 36 percent of voters nationwide think the president's health care plan is a good idea. That means a solid majority of the electorate—64 percent—think the plan is either a bad idea (45 percent) or are unsure about it (19 percent). Moreover, nearly half of those polled (49 percent) would like to see the law repealed; 42 percent oppose repeal. Illustrating public frustration with Washington, the poll also showed that a majority of voters (52 percent) expect the Supreme Court's ruling to be primarily based on politics, while less than one-third (32 percent) think it will be decided mostly on the underlying legal issues.
