Americans Are Still Divided On Obamacare


-- this post authored by Niall McCarthy

During his first address to a joint session of Congress, U.S. President Donald Trump outlined the principles he wants to include in his effort to reform American healthcare.

He advocated repealing and replacing Obamacare, saying Americans with pre-existing healthcare should still have access to insurance. He added that people should be allowed purchase their own coverage through tax credits as well as being given the freedom to purchase insurance across state lines.

Meanwhile, the public is still deeply divided in its support for Obamacare, according to the latest polls from the Kaiser Family Foundation. There has been a recent shift in views with 48 percent of people favoring Obamacare compared to 42 percent who find it unfavorable. That level of support has not been seen in over 60 Kaiser Family Foundation polls conducted since 2010 and it has been driven by a change in views among independents. Despite that change in support, the public is also divided on what lawmakers should do regarding the 2010 law. 47 percent are in favor of Congress repealing it while 48 percent want Obamacare to remain.

This chart shows the % of people with a favorable/unfavorable view of the Affordable Care Act from 2010 to 2017.

Note: This data was reported before the recent failure of the GOP Health Care bill in Congress.
