Sic ’em, Scalia! Poll shows voters cheering Supreme Court’s challenge of Obamacare
Americans got a taste of some feisty questions leveled against Obamacare by Supreme Court justices last month, and apparently, they liked what they saw.
According to a new Rasmussen Reports poll, approval ratings for the court leaped from all-time record lows right before the constitutionality of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act – commonly called Obamacare – went on trial to their highest levels in two-and-a-half years only two weeks later.
“Forty-one percent of likely U.S. voters now rate the Supreme Court’s performance as good or excellent,” the report asserts. “That’s up 13 points from 28 percent in mid-March,” which would have been two weeks before oral arguments were heard in the case brought by 26 states against Obamacare.
