A recently released CNN poll shows that Americans oppose Obamacare by a margin of 17 percentage points (56 to 39 percent). Independents like Obamacare even less, opposing it by a margin of 25 points (60 to 35 percent). CNN also shows that, by a 10-point margin — 52 to 42 percent — independents do not approve of the job that Barack Obama is doing as president. 


Given such overwhelming opposition to Obamacare, it’s no wonder that the last 25 polls compiled by Real Clear Politics have all shown that Americans support repeal, with 21 of them showing double-digit support.
