The number of those who support President Obama’s health care law continued to drop in December, according to a CNN/ORC poll released Monday, a crucial deadline for enrollment.
Only 35 percent of people polled last week say they support the Affordable Care Act, down from 40 percent in November and 41 percent in October. The number who oppose the law continued to increase, with 62 percent saying they oppose the law, up from 58 percent in November and 56 percent in October.
Monday is the last day to enroll to be covered by Jan. 1.
More people also think the law will make their family worse off when compared to responses from earlier this year. About 42 percent of respondents said the health care law will hurt their family, compared to only 16 percent who said they think the law will improve their lives.
More than 1,000 people were interviewed Dec. 16-19 by both landline and cellphones for the poll. The margin of error is 8.5 percentage points or less.
