The administration may have praised the late surge of enrollments in health coverage under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, but the public isn’t impressed.
A new Gallup poll finds support of the law hasn’t increased at all due to exceeding enrollment numbers, with opposition and support for PPACA remaining in line with polling from November. Support for the law sits at 43 percent, while opposition is at 54 percent.
Gallup interviewed 1,009 adults for the poll on April 7–8, about a week after the White House announced 7.1 million people enrolled in health coverage through the exchanges, a number exceeding even the most optimistic administration estimates.
Since then, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius announced 7.5 million people had signed up for Obamacare through the exchanges.
Sebelius announced her resignation last week.
