Poll: 51% of Americans Oppose PPACA; 1 out of 6 Want More Reform
CNN/ORC International poll released today shows that 51 percent of Americans oppose the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, while 43 percent are in favor of it. Six percent have no opinion on the matter.
Of the 51 percent polled who oppose the healthcare law, one-third said they oppose it for being too politically liberal. One in six people polled said they oppose the PPACA because its healthcare reforms don't go far enough.
The results are nearly identical to those from a poll asking the same questions in March, when the Supreme Court began hearing arguments about the healthcare law's constitutionality.
