The Obamacare Debate Loosens its Grip on Congressional Elections

Republicans have a modest edge in voter enthusiasm, but Obamacare is not their main motivator, accord to a Kaiser Family Foundation Health Tracking Poll. Twenty-seven percent of Republicans say they are more enthusiastic about voting this year. But the most common reason is to help Republicans gain control of the Senate at 13% while just 3% mention the health care law. Forty-seven percent are in favor of the ACA, and 35% are against it. Sixty-three percent want Congress to improve the law while 33% want Congress to repeal it. Thirty-eight percent of voters say they would be less likely to vote for a candidate who voted for the health care law while 29% would be more likely. Forty-one percent say they would be more likely to vote for a candidate who voted to repeal the law while 30% would be less likely. In the 11 states with the most competitive Senate races, 72% of those surveyed say they have seen ads about the health care law. Thirty-four percent saw more ads against it and 4% saw more ads in favor. Sixty percent of Republicans and other voters who don’t like the ACA want candidates to keep up the Obamacare debate. Similar shares of Democrats and other voter who like the law want candidates to move on to other issues. Twenty-seven percent of Democrats, 11% of independents, and 2% of Republicans say the ACA has helped them. On the other hand, 45% of Republicans, 31% of independents, and 10% Democrats say that the law has hurt them. For more information, visitwww.kff.org.
