Poll: O-Care Will Affect Mid-Term Vote

A strong majority, 68 percent, say ObamaCare will affect their vote in November’s congressional elections, according to a new poll, but the public remains split on what Congress should do with the landmark health law. The poll by Bankrate.com released Wednesday found 44 percent saying their view on the Affordable Care Act would be a major factor in their vote in House elections, with another 24 percent saying it would be a minor factor. Twenty-five percent said ObamaCare wouldn’t factor at all into how they voted. The poll, though, also found a divide on how Congress should handle healthcare reform after the elections.  Thirty percent want to repeal the law entirely with 12 percent wanting to keep it as is. Twenty-nine percent want minor changes, with 23 percent backing a major overhaul/The Hill. More here.
