USA Today

The last couple of months have been rough for the Affordable Care Act, what with the rollout of a shockingly unready website and President Obama awkwardly scrambling to make good on his ill-advised promise that all people could keep their health plans if they liked them. Unsurprisingly, this slow-motion disaster has soured Americans on Obama and his signature law.

A new USA TODAY/Pew Research Center poll shows disapproval for Obamacare at its highest point since Pew began polling on the law in 2010; 45% say it will have a mostly negative effect on the country, and just 39% say it will be mostly positive.
