New Poll: One in Four Democrats Favors Obamacare’s Repeal
7:14 AM, May 1, 2012 • By JEFFREY H. ANDERSON
The latest Rasmussen poll of likely voters shows that 26 percent of Democrats support the repeal of President Obama’s centerpiece legislation — which, of course, was a purely Democratic endeavor that passed without a single Republican vote. Moreover, the poll shows that most of these repeal-supporting Democrats are “strongly” supportive of repeal.
Meanwhile, independents support repeal by a margin of 21 percentage points (52 to 31 percent). Among independents who feel “strongly,” the margin is nearly 2 to 1: 42 to 22 percent.
Among all likely voters (regardless of party), repeal is favored by a margin of 19 points — 55 to 36 percent. This marks the 32nd consecutive Rasmussen poll showing double-digit support for Obamacare’s repeal. The last time Rasmussen’s polling did not show Americans supporting repeal by double-digits was more than eleven months ago (when they favored it by 8 points).
With the president’s signature legislation being this overwhelmingly unpopular, the upcoming election is not just going to be about the economy.
