53% of U.S. Residents Disapprove of ACA, Poll Finds
Fifty-three percent of U.S. residents in July said they had an unfavorable view of the Affordable Care Act, the highest level since the law was passed in 2010, according to a Kaiser Family Foundation poll. The percentage of respondents who disapproved of the ACA increased by eight points from Kaiser's June poll, from 45% to 53%, marking one of the largest swings that the monthly poll has recorded on the law.
