Support for ObamaCare Continues to Sink

The more Americans learn about what Congress is doing to reform the nation’s health care system, the less the American people support it.

According to the latest Rasmussen Reports survey, support among nationwide voters for the reform plan(s) being pushed by President Obama and Congressional Democrats has shrunk to 41%, with 56% of voters opposing it.  “That’s down two points from a week ago and the lowest level of support yet measured,” writes Rasmussen.

Other notable numbers revealed by the survey:

  • Only 33% of senior citizens support the plan compared to the 59% who are opposed.
  • A mere 16% of voters over the age of 65 ”Strongly Favor” the legislation, while 46% are “Strongly Opposed.”
  • 75% of Democrats support the reform being considered by Congress.
  • 79% of Republicans are opposed.
  • 72% of independent voters — those who don’t affiliate with either major political party — are opposed.
  • Among all voters surveyed, 23% “Strongly Favor” the plan vs. 43% who are “Strongly Opposed.”
