Polls: Support for Obamacare hits all-time high

Vice President Mike Pence said on Thursday that the Trump Administration will end “America’s Obamacare nightmare.”

But it appears more and more Americans don’t view the Affordable Care Act the same way as Republicans in Washington D.C.

President Trump and Republicans have promised to repeal Obamacare but have been subject to backlash when they head back home to talk to voters at town halls.

The Kaiser Family Foundation, in its latest Health Tracking Poll, found support for the insurance safety net at an all-time high. It’s survey found that 48 percent of Americans view the law favorably, compared to 42 percent — the highest level of favorability measured since the tracking started in 2010.

Voters who say they are registered independents contributed to the boost, half of whom view Obamacare favorably compared to 39 percent who don’t.

And the Kaiser poll doesn’t seem to be an outlier. The Pew Research Center found 54 percent of Americans approve of the ACA — which is also the highest level record by Pew.
