In a new Fox News poll released late Monday, informationÂ came out that shows that the majority of voters in America wish that theÂ Affordable Care Act never became law.
â€śThe survey of over 1,000 voters, conducted in early June,Â found a consistently pessimistic outlook on the health-care law, which hasÂ failed to gain widespread support despite the Obama administrationâ€™s attemptsÂ to fix technical glitches,â€ť reports TheÂ Daily Caller.
55 percent of voters polled in the Fox News survey wish thatÂ Obamacare was never passed by Congress and that the pre-Obamacare healthcareÂ system was still in place.
Independents felt strongly about the law, with 58 percentÂ wishing that the law did not pass congress.
85 percent of Republicans regret Obamacareâ€™s passage andÂ only 25 percent of Democrats regret it.
The poll also found that 58 percent of voters said that theyÂ were extremely or very interested in the midterm elections this November. 41Â percent were somewhat or not at all interested. 43 percent of respondents saidÂ that they are leaning Republican going into this yearâ€™s midterm elections,Â compared to 39 percent who said that they lean Democrat.
â€śFifty-five percent of voters expect that the federalÂ government wonâ€™t do a better job managing Obamacare than it has running theÂ Veterans Health Administration. Just 31 percent of voters are optimistic thatÂ the government will do a better job with the health care law,â€ť reports The Daily Caller.
The Obama administration has not been able to boost theÂ publicâ€™s confidence in its ability to properly handle the implementation of theÂ largest healthcare overhaul in U.S. history. Website failures, applicationÂ errors, and deadline delays have done nothing but ingrain in the public theÂ notion that the Department of Health and Human Services is run by completelyÂ incompetent people.
44 percent of voters say that Obamacare has made the countryÂ worse. This is bad news, as another 24 percent believe that the law hasnâ€™t madeÂ a significant difference. A mere 29 percent of voters actually believe that theÂ presidentâ€™s signature legislative achievement has actually made the countryÂ better.
Obamacareâ€™s wild unpopularity is proving to be a major issueÂ for vulnerable Democrats going into this yearâ€™s midterm elections. DemocratsÂ have been attempting to distance themselves from the president and hisÂ healthcare law, as there exists a strong chance that Republicans will take backÂ the Senate come November.
Should Democrats lose the Senate in the coming midterm elections, much of the blame will be placed upon Obamacare’s shoulders. Democratic strategists are banking on the American public warming up to the president’s healthcare law, because without this, electoral success will prove to be a much harder prospect to achieve.
