Obamacare Popularity Continues to Rise


Every couple of weeks I like to post the latest Pollster aggregate of Obamacare’s approval rating. It’s been rising for months, and it’s now a solid five points in positive territory.

And as long as we’re on the subject, a friend reminded me the other day of just how infuriating Democrats have been on Obamacare. They’ve had seven years to extol its benefits, which they should have been doing at the top of their lungs. Instead, most of them have done their best to avoid being associated with it. This is one of the biggest own-goals in party history. Is it any wonder that the public has been lukewarm about Obamacare when one party has attacked it relentlessly and the other has mostly twiddled its thumbs and stared at the ceiling?
