Though Democrats have worked to frame the issue of Obamacare as “Republicans vs. Democrats,” the reality of the healthcare overhaul has fallen flat with the vast majority of Americans as only 6% of Americans, according to a CBS News poll, feel that Obamacare is working as is.
According to the poll, only 2% of Republicans feel that Obamacare is working well as it is now. Though that is not surprising, only 13% of polled Democrats feel Obamacare is working well.
That means that only 6% of polled Americans are happy with Obamacare as it is now.
