Poll: Only About 1 In 4 Wants Trump To Repeal Obamacare

Source: Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) — Only about one in four Americans wants President-elect Donald Trump to entirely repeal his predecessor's health care law that extended coverage to millions, a new poll has found.

The post-election survey released Thursday by the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation also found hints of a pragmatic shift among some Republican foes of "Obamacare."

While 52 percent of Republicans say they want the law completely repealed, that share is down from 69 percent just last month, before the election. And more Republicans now say they want the law "scaled back" under the new president and GOP Congress, with that share more than doubling from 11 percent before the election to 24 percent after.

Kaiser CEO Drew Altman said the foundation's polling experts aren't quite sure what to make of that finding, and will continue to track the apparent shift in future polls. The organization is a clearinghouse for information and analysis about the health care system.

3. This goes to show

it was all because that "black Kenyan Commie Nazi socialist 'Muslin'" enacted it (despite it being watered down into what the GOP originally proposed way back but eventually rejected in 2010). This is why they have nothing as a "replacement" other than useless "vouchers" and "health savings" plans.

Poll shows Obamacare started looking a lot better after the election

Support for repealing the Affordable Care Act dropped significantly among Republicans immediately after the November election, according to a new poll. The data also reveal that, although a large majority of Trump voters say they view President Obama's health care law negatively, they like many of its provisions.

According to the data, collected by the Kaiser Family Foundation, 69 percent of Republicans supported repealing President Obama's signature health care law in October; a month later, only about half supported a full repeal.

“This is a new thing, first time we've seen it,” said the foundation's president, Drew Altman. He cautioned against reading too much into a single data point and said his organization would ask the same question next month, to see if the pattern holds. “We had a great debate over whether to even report it, because all of a sudden there it was — and it was quite significant.”

The results are surprising because President-elect Donald Trump's promise to repeal and replace the health-care law has been one of his clearest policy positions, reinforced by the announcement this week that he had chosen one of its fiercest critics to head the Department of Health and Human Services..........................

9. There's the problem right there:

Those that hate hated enough to get out and vote. I think a massive number of Americans who are now absolutely horrified at the prospect of a president tRump never actually believed he had a chance to win. Many many people sat this one out, thinking it was a slam-dunk for Hillary, and now we are left with this catastrophe.

8. They want to keep the "goodies" but get rid of the individual mandate that pays for it.

 

Typical Wingnut logic.

10. Oh well, too bad for them

It's not very Christian, but I will take pleasure in seeing these Trump voters see their life expectancies continue to drop as they work ever longer hours and years at low and stagnant wages with fewer and fewer benefits and labor protections. If I ever have one of them complain to me about work/wages/benefits, I'll just say elections have consequences and the consequence for you is you'll be lucky if you die on the job.

14. stats already show a lower life expectancy

IIRC, Census Bureau stats already show a shorter life expectancy for white lower middle class Americans. Again, iirc, they were the only group to show a decline.

I usually glance at the obits in my local paper and there seem to be a lot of people in their 50s, 60s and early 70s rather than 80s and 90s.

11. Nope. He should repeal it all, especially pre-existing, but just for his supporters

 

Heh.
