Americans’ opinion of President Barack Obama’s health care reform in October reached its lowest point since the law passed in March 2010, according to a monthly poll by the non-profit, non-partisan Kaiser Family Foundation.
51 percent of 1,223 Americans polled said they had an unfavorable opinion, while 34 percent said their opinion was favorable. In September, the split was 43 percent to 41 percent. The gap widened largely because the law appeared to be falling out of favor with Democrats, whose support dropped to its lowest point of 52 percent from 65 percent in September. Although Democrats were still much likelier to view the law favorably than Republicans or independents, the percentage of Democrats who said they and their families were better off under the healthcare law dropped significantly to 27 percent in October from 43 percent in September.
