Poll: ObamaCare is more 'unfavorable' than ever

A new poll found that a majority of Americans are unsatisfied with ObamaCare. The number marks an all-time high disapproval rating since the law was created.

The survey, conducted by the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation, found that in July, 53 percent of those polled had a negative opinion of the Affordable Care Act. That's an eight percent increase since the foundation's June poll. Just 37 percent of those polled viewed ObamaCare favorably.

Fewer than half of those the Kaiser Family Foundation polled had talked about the Affordable Care Act with their family or friends — but those who did talk about it were likely sharing negative opinions:

In addition to general disapproval with the Affordable Care Act, 56 percent of those polled said they weren't directly affected by ObamaCare. Meanwhile, 28 percent of those polled said the Affordable Care Act has harmed them or their family, while only 15 percent said ObamaCare had helped them.
