Obamacare Could Hurt Democratic Candidates

falloutobamacareNagging concerns over the Affordable Care Act appear likely to cost the Democratic Party during the 2014 congressional elections, according to the latest survey by Robert Morris University. Forty percent of Americans surveyed said they are somewhat or much less likely to support a candidate that supported or voted for Obamacare than those (32.5%) indicating they would be somewhat or much more likely to support a candidate who supported or voted for the Act.

RMU political scientist Philip Harold said, “What really jumps out here is gender and marital status. Among likely voters in this poll, women are driving the opposition to Obamacare. Male likely voters are actually in favor of Obamacare.”

Forty-four percent of likely male voters said they would be more likely to vote for a member of Congress who voted for The Affordable Care Act, versus 39.2% who would be less likely. Forty-five percent of likely female voters said they are more likely to vote against a pro-Obamacare candidate versus 29.1% who would vote for an Obamacare supporter. Married women have the strongest antipathy to the Affordable Care Act, opposing it 50.3% to 24.2%.
The poll of 1,006 American adults also found that former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton are the early favorites for their party’s presidential nominations in 2016.

Among likely voters who are Republicans, the leading contenders for the Republican nomination for president are former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, Florida Senator Marco Rubio, Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, Texas Senator Ted Cruz and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie (in declining order). Among likely voters who are Democrats, the leading contenders for the Democratic nomination for president are former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Vice President Joe Biden, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, and Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren (in declining order).
