Just one percent of Republicans say they and their families are better off now that ObamaCare's major provisions have taken effect, according to a new CNN poll. Another 40 percent say they are unaffected, while a 57 percent majority say they are worse off.
Meanwhile, illustrating the hyper-partisan divide over the issue, 32 percent of Democrats say they are better off, 10 percent say worse, and 57 percent say they've seen no change.
One more interesting note: CNN also asked those who felt the law had not helped them whether anyone was better off because of ObamaCare. In that group, a whopping 72 percent of Republicans said the law had helped zero families.- -
