California support for Affordable Care Act continues to grow
Sacramento Bee

After what most consider a successful implementation of the law in California, support for the Affordable Care Act among Golden State voters is the highest it’s ever been, according to a new Field Poll.

Fifty-six percent of respondents expressed support for the federal health law, up three percentage points from last year, compared to 35 percent who oppose it. That approval was likely bolstered by last fall’s rollout of the state health insurance exchange; 60 percent of California voters feel the state has been successful in implementing the Affordable Care Act, twice as many as do not. (Respondents were more evenly split on federal implementation: 49 percent to 46 percent.)
