Will Americans ever be happy? Poll shows it’s hard to please us

SHARE Will Americans ever be happy? Poll shows it’s hard to please us

A day after two federal courts gave conflicting rulings on Obamacare, a new poll shows more than half of Americans has either helped their families or others across the country.

Also interesting about the CNN/ORC International survey is that a majority of Americans oppose the Affordable Care Act, but some oppose it because they say the law doesn’t do enough.

Here’s a closer look at the numbers:

  • Of those surveyed, 18 percent said either they or their families are better off after Obamacare
  • Also, 35 percent said even if their lives haven’t improved, the lives of others have.

When it comes to support for the measure, 59 percent say they oppose the measure.

Not all of the opposition to the health care law comes from the right, said CNN Polling Director Keating Holland. Thirty-eight percent say they oppose the law because it’s too liberal, but 17% say they oppose it because it’s not liberal enough. That means more than half the public either favors Obamacare, or opposes it because it doesn’t go far enough.
