USAToday/Pew: ObamaCare Approval Down In Dirty 30s, Below 2010 Midterm Levels

obamacare-approval-ratingA new USAToday/Pew survey says their latest ObamaCare approval rating has tumbled down in to the dirty 30s, specifically 37 percent. With support for the law now lower than pre-2010 midterm election levels, political reality for Democrats is beginning to get even worse.

As far as making a decision about who to vote for in the upcoming elections, 54 percent of Americans say a candidate’s stance on the health care law say it will be “very important,” while another 30 percent say it will be “somewhat important.” And from the pool of public sentiment, it isn’t difficult to discern how that vote will swing.

By a 43 to 30 percent margin, respondents say that — up until now — the health care law has had a “mostly negative” rather than “mostly positive” impact on the country. And when asked about the future, 44 percent say it will have a mostly negative impact to 38 percent who think it will have a mostly positive impact.

On our PPD average of ObamaCare approval polls, several pollsters have found a steep drop in support for the Democrats’ and president’s health care law. Just when pundits begin to think that support for the law had a floor, it beats the bottoms. Rasmussen Reports, which stubbornly found support hovering around 40 percent, recently reported a record-high 58 percent of likely voters oppose the law, with a record-low 38 percent supporting it. Other pollster are in line with those findings, as well.

A recent Reason Rupe poll found just 36 support with 53 in opposition, and an Associated Press/Gfk poll found an astonishing 26 percent of adults support the law.

While Democrats have touted enrollment surges, which don’t even jive when scrutinized, a new study conducted by healthcare analysts at Morgan Stanley found health insurance premiums increased at the highest rate ever measured due to ObamaCare. From the data reported by Pew and other pollsters, the negative impacts have not gone unnoticed by the American people, which will no doubt bode bad for Democrats in red, purple and even bluer states.
