A new national survey conducted for Democracy Corps and the Women’s Voices Women’s Vote Action Fund[1] shows an intense new majority for implementing and improving the Affordable Care Act. A minority of voters want to repeal or replace “Obamacare,” which has been the core demand of the Republicans in Congress who have shut down the government. 

We want to be clear because so much of the punditry assumes Obamacare is “unpopular.”  Many supporters assume that support will come once the benefits take effect in January.  Neither of these assumptions is true.  Support has shifted dramatically since 2010 when reforms were unpopular and supporters paid a high political price. Some of that reflects perceptions of new positive benefits by people over 50 years, white older women and unmarried women.  While supporters and opponents are divided evenly on the health care reforms, 8 percent are opposed because they do not go far enough.  Just 38 percent are opposed because it is big government – very close to the number who stick with the Republican call to repeal and replace the law.
