Nearly six in 10 likely voters now view President Obama’s health care law unfavorably — the highest level since early January — according to a new poll from Rasmussen.

Fifty-eight percent view the law unfavorably, compared to 38 percent who have at least a somewhat favorable opinion of the Affordable Care Act, commonly known as Obamacare, which has been plagued by a disastrous roll-out of key provisions that began in early October.


Fifty-five percent give Mr. Obama poor marks for his handling of health care issues — a new high for the year.

Fifty-five percent also want to repeal the law, while 35 percent say it’s good for America. Voters oppose the law’s individual mandate requiring nearly all Americans to purchase health insurance or pay a fine by a nearly identical 54 percent to 34 percent margin.

More than half say they have felt no impact from the law, while 11 percent say they have been helped and 30 percent say they have been hurt. Twenty-eight percent say their health care has changed because of the law, 62 percent say it’s unchanged, and 9 percent aren’t sure.

The survey conducted on Nov. 15-16 of 1,000 likely voters has a margin of error of three percentage points.
