The Affordable Care Act (ACA), also known as Obamacare, is more popular than ever and health care costs are a hot topic for voters ahead of the 2018 midterm elections. Those two bits of news come from a recent Kaiser Health Tracking Poll.
Obamacare has the support of 54 percent of the public, the highest percentage ever reported from the Kaiser Family Foundation.
The Kaiser Health Tracking Poll has been conducted more than 80 times since 2010, when Obamacare formally went into effect. It measures public attitudes toward the law and last month found support was at 50 percent. The highest unfavorable rating was of 53 percent, a measure reported in July 2014, shortly after the healthcare.gov site faced a troubled rollout.
