Politico reports:

The historic Supreme Court hearings on President Barack Obama’s health care reform did not affect most Americans’ views of the law and the court, but they did make more people feel less favorable than favorable about both, a new poll has found.

Almost two in three people, 63 percent, said what they saw and heard about the Supreme Court hearings on the health care law didn’t change their opinion of the measure, according to a Pew Research Center-Washington Post survey. Still, 23 percent said they had a less favorable view of the divisive law after the three-day hearings, compared with 7 percent who said they had a more favorable opinion after last week.
