Supreme Court ruling on "Obamacare" Poll finds partisan views on health care law

| No Comments

WASHINGTON--A poll by the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press found plenty of partisanship when it comes to the "expected reaction" to the upcoming Supreme Court decision on President Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act--which could be Monday.

"Most Democrats would be happy if the law is upheld, which most Republicans would be happy if it is thrown out," the poll taken June 7-17 found. Some 44 percent would be happy if the entire law were thrown out to 39 percent happy if the court upheld the entire law.

And while much debate has raged over the law--the poll found vast ignorance about what it includes. Only 18 percent said they understood what's in the law very well; 49 percent somewhat well and 31 percent not too or not all well."

The battle between Obama and Romney is over independents--especially in battleground states. The Pew poll found more independents--55 percent--disapporve of the law than the 36 percent who approve.
