Here are the results of our ObamaCare Survival Poll. Politics Plus Polls are not scientific, because those who respond are not balanced according to demographic categories. Therefore, we do not accurately reflect the makeup of the US population. Nevertheless, our polls are often both accurate and indicative of the nationís view.

I voted yes but with changes. I was half-right. LOL. They weren't huge changes but, give the Rethuglitards time, they will find a way to really foul it up with some really stupid and harmful changes...
Hope the Democrats can maintain their backbones this time so that they can prove me half-wrong on this one!

In this case only time will tell, because the Republicans just haven't given up the fight yet. Every now and then a new attack seems eminent, but as yet it hasn't been more than a skirmish here and there. I can't really shake the feeling they are regrouping and planning another major assault on the ACA., but I hope to be proven wrong.

I agree with Lona. I would guess they are busy regrouping during their long holiday vacation and will come back full force to try and tear down ACA. They simply cannot let go of the fact that this will be part of Obama's legacy and the only legacy they've got right now is shutting down our government and being run around by a group of fanatical bible thumping misfits.

Well, I just read a story from JL in which Boehner was whining about how his premiums have doubled under the ACA, but neglected to say why, which is because he is among the highest income (not wage earners, as I don't believe he can be said to work for a living) gatherers in the country. That's why. But that will be conveniently overlooked in the right wing media. I'd say, cry me a river, John, but he just might...

The polls are meaningless from where I sit. Obama is now a certified liar and this is precisely why his rating is in the toilet. The American people will vote in 2014 and it appears that Obama has created the perfect storm, once again, foe another tsunami win for the republicans.
The ACA will not work. It's about the cost to young people....they cannot afford to pay the higher premiums. At the beginning of the day and at the end of the day it is the cost.....our young people will pay the penalty.
Total flop at the feet of the most incompetent President in the history of our country. Bottom line...Obama lied. The democrats cannot sweep that under a carpet.
I just love it when Diane makes election predictions. She has been 100% wrong, so that could mean a landslide for the democrats in the fall of 2014. Honestly, I have to wonder if she and republican/teas every look at what is under their carpet.

Whether the polls are right or not, the ACA does need work, and the only way it will get done is for Congress to actually work on it. They have wasted so much time trying to get rid of it when they should have been spending their time trying to fix it. A good start would be to look at MA and see what they tweaked, especially since it seems to be working so well after several years.

I remember the 2010 election and it can happen again in 2014. We all make predictions and not all of them come to fruition. Americans are NOT supporting Obama because of his lies and incompetence. These same Americans will vote.

Affordable Care Act includes some very popular ideas: parents can pay for insurance for young adult children, medically fragile people can get insurance, no co-pay for birth control prescriptions.
