Rasmussen: Support For Obamacare Still Exceedingly Weak

A just-released Rasmussen Reports survey finds that American public opinion simply doesn’t support the President’s health-care plan nearly a year after its passage.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 39% of Likely U.S. Voters at least somewhat favor a federal law that requires every American to buy or obtain health insurance, while 58% at least somewhat oppose such a requirement. The new findings include 21% who Strongly Favor the requirement versus 44% who are Strongly Opposed.

That 58 percent is five percent more than opinion stood in March of last year when Democrats rammed Obamacare through to passage.



But the numbers don’t end there. By a 54-30 margin, respondents said states should have the right to opt out of Obamacare. That would suggest widespread support for the 26-state lawsuit against the law, which bore fruit this week when Judge Roger Vinson threw the law out as unconstitutional in a U.S. District Court in Florida.
