A new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll shows for the first time that those who think the Affordable Care Act (ACA, aka Obamacare) is a “good idea” outweigh those who think it’s a “bad idea,” 45 to 41 percent. It was the first positive poll result for the health care program since it was announced back in 2009.
Worse news for the Republicans who are planning to kill the program is that 50 percent of respondents to the poll basically think they’ll screw things up.
The poll was conducted from Jan. 12 to 15 and involved 1,000 adults. The margin of error in either direction is 3.1 percent.
