Poll: Most Americans Oppose Affordable Care Act Repeal

According to the latest United Technologies/National Journal Congressional Connection poll, Americans continue to oppose House Republicans’ continued attempts to repeal the Affordable Care Act:

“Despite sharp divisions over the long-term impact of President Obama's health-reform law, fewer than two in five Americans say it should be repealed, virtually unchanged since last summer, the latest United Technologies/National Journal Congressional Connection Poll has found.”

“Amid all the tumult over the law's troubled implementation, the survey found that public opinion about it largely follows familiar political tracks and has changed remarkably little since the summer on the critical question of what Congress should do next. On that measure, support for repeal has not significantly increased among any major group except Republicans and working-class whites since the Congressional Connection Poll last tested opinion on the question in July.”

Are Republicans paying attention? Republicans have wasted time on 46 votes to repeal or undermine the Affordable Care Act – and that’s clearly not what the American people want.
