The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) may be getting more support from Republicans.
Jeffrey Jones, a Gallup analyst, has published data on a possible shift in Republicans’ attitudes toward PPACA in a summary of data from a telephone survey of 2,013 U.S. adults ages 18 and older that was conducted in early July.
Gallup found that PPACA continues to be unpopular with Republicans, but that the percentage of Republicans who say they approve of the law has increased.
About 47 percent of all survey participants now say they approve of the PPACA, up from 37 percent in November 2014.
The percentage of survey participants who say they approve of PPACA increased to 83 percent, from 74 percent, among Democrats. The percentage of Democrats who say the law has helped their families has increased to 30 percent, from 27 percent, in October.
