POLL: Obamacare will Skew Votes this November
Posted July 2nd, 2014 @ 11:51am by KFBK News

A new poll finds Obamacare will skew votes this Fall.

Nearly seven in 10 adults surveyed by Bankrate.com said their opinion of the president's health care law will play a role in their decision of which Congressional candidate to vote for.

Forty-four percent said Obamacare would be a major factor in decisions, while 24 percent said it would only play a minor roll.

Bankrate analysts say the law won't be a "slam dunk" issue for either political party, but could sway some registered independents towards the GOP.

Additional Findings:

  • 1-in-4 registered independents who identified Obamacare as an election issue say they are likely to vote Republican in the upcoming fall elections, while only 1-in-8 is inclined to vote Democrat.
  • 18- to 29-year-olds want Congress to make changes to Obamacare more than any other age group.
  • Americans with annual household incomes of $50,000+ are the most likely to say that Obamacare will play a factor in their voting decisions in the fall.

The survey was conducted by Princeton Survey Research Associates International (PSRAI) and can be seen in its entirety here:
