In the run up to the SCOTUS argument on Obamacare (beginning March 26!), “the White House is coordinating some public relations stunts to promote the idea that there is broad public support” for the healthcare law, according to NRO. Good luck with that. The latest poll, an AP-GfK Poll, conducted March 8, 2012, found only 35 percent of Americans support the health care law overhaul, while 47 percent oppose it. Meanwhile, Americans overwhelmingly believe the individual mandate is unconstitutional, by a margin of 72 percent to 20 percent, according to a USA Today/Gallup Poll, conducted last month.
Doctors don’t like it either. A survey taken a couple weeks ago finds that 60 percent of doctors think Obamacare will have a “negative impact” on patient care. More depressing (in a nation with a physician shortage), a whopping 43 percent of respondents said they are considering retiring within the next five years because of Obamacare.
