Support for ACA Declines, KFF Tracking Poll Finds
Forty-seven percent of respondents to the Kaiser Family Foundation's January 2014 tracking poll had an unfavorable opinion of the Affordable Care Act, up from 43% in the December 2013 tracking poll. Meanwhile, 24% of uninsured respondents had a favorable view of the ACA, down from 36% in December. However, 55% of all respondents suggested that further debate on the law should shift from repealing it to how to improve it.
