Skip to comments.Poll: Fewer Americans Now Support Obamacare Repeal
Posted on 11/14/2012 7:30:33 AM PST by SeekAndFind
A record low number of American voters want to see the Affordable Care Act Obamacare repealed, according to a new post-election poll conducted by the Kaiser Family Foundation.
Obamacare was not the top issue driving American to vote, although nearly seven in 10 Americans cited it as a major factor in their decision choosing between the candidates, according to Kaiser. Voters who listed Obamacare as a major factor were evenly split between Republican Mitt Romney, 47 percent, and President Obama, 46 percent.
But only 33 percent of Americans now want to see the law repealed. Romney had pledged to repeal the law and replace it with new policy. 43 percent of Americans view the law favorably and 39 percent view it unfavorably, according to the poll.
Seven in 10 Americans also cited the future of Medicare as a major factor in their vote. Obama led among this group, 50 percent 41 percent.
National exit polls conducted on election day found 26 percent of voters wanted the law expanded, 18 percent want it left as-is, 27 percent wanted to repeal some of the law and 25 percent wanted to repeal all of it.

Or simply are becoming more resign in other words.
People are so stupid though, they'll just assume it somehow has something to do with the Bush taxcuts, and is therefore...
We are a nation of Idiots and we deserve everything coming to us.
So 52% want to repeal “some or all” of it?
But people will REALLY like Obamacare once the long waits, lack of doctors, medical work performed by interns, imported doctors from the third-world, government bureaucrat denial of your care, euthanasia, and declining medical technology innovation all kick in.
One frog to the other frog, “does it feel warmer in here?”
You weren't home, or it said ABC, or it said KAISER, or it said PEW on your caller ID.
Abortion industry people, Feminazis and GBLT folks always answer these calls. Together they are less than 3% of the population, but by answering these calls they end up being 33% of the respondents.
Creates an interesting Leftwingtard bias to just about every poll.
None of the conclusions reported in the news release are valid, nor are they believable.
Which is why data analysis corrects for this.
Anyways - why is it when half the people support the repeal of obamacare it’s seen as a reason why we should dump these people. Hell no.

The American Broadcasting sub-Ministry of Truth.
Look for tremendous public pressure on Congress to lessen Obamacare's pain forcing the costs to skyrocket and add huge amounts to the national debt and deficit.
These current polls are nonsense. The pain of Obamacare is coming.
Won't be long now folks.
Another Bullshit poll!
And we’re supposed to continue to believe polls? Just like we’re supposed to believe elections are honest. Even the democrat pundits know this was rigged. Mathews and the rest at msnbc were almost to tears for a week before the election. They were just as surprised as anyone else. Then they got giddy, as did Megan Kelley, as soon as they figured it out.
However, if you push on too thin a sample with too great a bias, and ignore the fact you just disqualified 91% of your random sample calls, you are just making a sham of random sample techniques and theory.
This is called Augury ~ it keeps the goobers entertained ~ it should not be used to support one or the other arguments in the making of public policy.
Doctors bled Washington until he was too weak to survive and now Washington DC will bleed doctors until they are too weak to survive. Ironic ain’t it?
Once the `Affordable Care’ bureaucracy (administrators, support staff, IRS division—all with great salaries, pensions, benefits and federal employee work ethics) is in place, at that point we could cover it with garlic in its coffin, pour holy water over it and drive a stake through its heart ....
And It will just laugh, pull the stake out & snap it in half, then It will climb out & turn us upside down and empty our pockets.
“We’re in for some rough sledding.” Mr. Obvious
Just happened here. My rates went up 20%, prescriptions up 15% and coin/dedct went up.
Also, my doctor of 20 years informed me he’s getting out while the getting is still good. He’ll retire at the end of 2013 and he’s only 61 (many good years left to serve). He told me that he’s not the only one to get out of the profession. Some docs are tempted to form their own “health care club” where people buy memberships of 2k just to get into the door.
RE: And were supposed to continue to believe polls?
I don’t know, but in this election cycle, the polls a lot of FReepers preferred to believe because they showed a lower Democrat sample vs Republicans were WRONG, and the polls a lot of FReepers ridiculed because they had a large Democratic sample vs Republicans turned out to be CORRECT.
