Americans Disapprove of Health Care Defunding Efforts

A large majority of Americans disapprove of Republican efforts to defund the health care law, according to a recently released CBS News poll.

The survey found that 55 percent of adults across the country disapprove of plans to defund the health care law, though a majority of respondents still disapprove of the law itself. Just over 50 percent of people surveyed said they disapproved of the law, with 34 percent strongly disapproving. Only 33 percent approved of the legislation.


Meanwhile, almost a year after the law passed, a 44 percent plurality of respondents are uncertain how it will affect the health care system. The poll found 23 percent of respondents think it will make health care worse, and 21 percent say it will make things better.

The telephone survey of 1,031 adults was conducted February 11-14. There is a margin of error of 3 percentage points.

President Obama, meanwhile, saw his approval rating remain fairly steady at 48 percent, down from 49 percent last month but up from 46 percent a year ago.
