New Poll Finds Public Support For Health Law Returns To Usual Split
The latest Kaiser Family Foundation tracking poll found that, after reaching an all-time low, support for the 2010 health law bounced back a bit to the levels shown in previous polls.

It's up. It's down. Americans' views about the health care law are, well, fluid. The latest Kaiser Family Foundation monthly poll shows that the law's popularity rose a bit after hitting a new low last month. (Kaiser Health News is a program of the foundation.) Still, more people don't like the law than do: 44 percent to 37 percent. That was a small improvement from October, when 51 percent panned the law, but the law's popularity remains below where it has been (Rau, 11/30).

That spike in the number of Americans who oppose the health care law might have been a blip after all — but that still doesn't mean the public likes it. The latest health care tracking poll by the Kaiser Family Foundation, released Wednesday, finds that 44 percent had an unfavorable view of the law in November, while only 37 percent had a favorable view. That's not good news for the Obama administration or the law's supporters, but it's closer to the split Americans have shown in most previous Kaiser polls. By contrast, the October poll had found much higher levels of opposition to the health law, with 51 percent holding an unfavorable view and only 34 percent favorable (Nather, 11/30).
