The percentage of Americans who say the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (PPACA) has helped them and their relatives is increasing.
Frank Newport, an analyst at Gallup, has given a glimpse of Americans’ personal experiences with PPACA in a summary of results from telephone interviews conducted with 2,040 adults ages 18 and older from April 1 through April 4. All of the survey participants live in the 50 U.S. states or the District of Columbia.
The margin of sampling error is 3 percentage points.
The percentage of participants who say they generally approve of PPACA now stands at 44 percent, Newman reported. That’s up from 37 percent in November, but down slightly from 45 percent around the time the PPACA exchange system opened.
Gallup asked participants how they thought PPACA had affected them and their families.
Newport broke the latest responses to that question down by income. He also broke personal impact data down by income in April 2014.
