RMU Poll: ACA burdens Dems

Published by James O'Toole on .

The Robert Morris Polling Institute finds that the Affordable Health Care Act, Obamacare, on balance, continues to be a hurdle for Democratic candidates across the country, although not by an overwhelming margin.

The survey of just over 1,000 adults, found that a plurality, 40 percent, of the overall sample, said they would be less likely to support a candidate who supported the health care law, while about a third of those questioned said they would be more likely to support a candidate who embraced the law.

In Pennsylvania, however, the anti-ACA feeling was stronger.  Just under half of those surveyed in the Keystone State said they would be less likely to vote for a candidate identiified with the law, while 27.6 percent would be attracted to an Obamacare supporter.
