Fox News Poll: 56 percent want to go back to pre-ObamaCare system

Majorities of American voters say their family will be worse off under the Affordable Care Act, and think it would be better to go back to the pre-ObamaCare health care system.

A Fox News poll released Wednesday finds that while 26 percent of voters say their health care situation will be better under the new law, twice as many -- 53 percent -- say it will be worse. Another 13 percent say it won’t make a difference.

Almost all Republicans (85 percent) and just over half of independents (51 percent) say they will be worse off under ObamaCare. Nearly half of Democrats expect to be better off (48 percent), while about one-quarter believe they will be worse off (24 percent).

Young voters and seniors are pessimistic about ObamaCare. Majorities of those under age 35 and those 65+ think things will be worse under the 2010 health care law. >>>


The new poll asks voters why the economy is not doing better under President Obama’s leadership. >>>

Forty-nine percent say Obama’s ideas have been bad and too many of them have been implemented, up from 37 percent two years ago.

By a 14-point margin, independents say Obama’s ideas on the economy have been bad. That’s a reversal from 2011 when they thought his ideas were good by a 15-point margin.
