Reuter’s is reporting that President Obama’s signature legislation, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, continues to fall out of favor with the American people. The poll shows that Democrats are starting to join the rest of us in our dislike of his massive health care bill.
The view of the law has been roughly evenly split since its passage, but in October 51 percent said they had an unfavorable opinion, while 34 percent said their opinion was favorable, poll results released on Friday showed.
In September, the split was 43 percent to 41 percent. And October’s gap is closest to the one the poll tracked in July 2010, when the division was 50 percent to 35 percent.
The gap widened largely because the law appeared to be falling out of favor with Democrats, whose support dropped to its lowest point of 52 percent from 65 percent in September.
