Polls: Enrollment Surges Do Little To Sway Public Opinion of ACA
California Healthline

The Obama administration’s announcement earlier this month that eight million people had enrolled in health coverage through the Affordable Care Act insurance exchanges appears to have had little effect on the public’s opinion about the law, according to a new Kaiser Family Foundation tracking poll, Modern Healthcare reports.

According to the monthly survey, which polled 1,504 U.S. adults between April 15 and April 21, 38% of U.S. residents have a favorable view of the ACA and 46% have an unfavorable view of the law (Demko, Modern Healthcare, 4/29).
