They still trust Obama more than Romney to handle it, they still want universal insurance coverage, and many of them feel the law didn't go far enough.
Sometime this month, the Supreme Court will hand down its ruling on the Affordable Care Act, the massive health-care reform law better known as Obamacare. That's inspired a flurry of polls to gauge public opinion about the law. Broadly, the polls reveal that Americans remain deeply uncomfortable with large parts of the law, especially the individual mandate. But it's not that simple. Here's a rundown:
Topline: 74 percent say the Supreme Court should strike down the individual mandate.
This Is Weird: Surprisingly, a majority of respondents (51 percent) say the Justices should strike down a key clause of the law, which bars insurers from rejecting customers on the basis of pre-existing conditions and was broadly popular with Republican as well as Democratic lawmakers. Furthermore, 46 percent say that if the law is struck down, they want Congress to try again to produce a law that guarantees insurance for almost all Americans. That suggests one of two outcomes. One is that there's a desire for a far more liberal law -- the individual mandate, which is three in four oppose, was a conservative alternative to publicly provided insurance. Any expansion would likely require government to take a larger role. The second possibility is that most Americans just don't understand the law.
