(U.S. News & World Report) Obamacare has extended health insurance coverage to nearly 20 million Americans – but that has done little to shift the public's oppinion about the law.
According to a survey released Wednesday by the Pew Research Center, 54 percent of Americans disapprove of the 2010 Affordable Care Act compared with 44 percent who approve of the law. While approval showed a modest increase since the law's passage, disapproval has increased by 10 percentage points. The divide has also become more pronounced since July, when 48 percent of respondents said they approved of the law and 49 percent said they disapproved.
The survey was conducted April 12 to 19, among 2,008 adults. Respondents answered questions about the law's personal impacts as well as its expected effects going forward.
