Public Approval Of Obamacare Bounces Up: 47%-48% In Washington Post Poll

Republican political strategists and many pundits agree that the 2014 Congressional elections will turn on public opinion of  the Affordable Care Act or Obamacare. Count me as a skeptic of this piece of political conventional wisdom, but the Washington Post poll finds the country evenly split on Obamacare.

Among registered voters, 47% approve and 48% disapprove of the program.

Public support for the Affordable Care Act fell significantly, during the disastrous rollout of the federal website (14 states have their own websites).  Support, however, has been growing again, as the Washington Post poll documents.
