The Affordable Care Act appears to be slightly more popular following the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold the controversial health care reform law, according to a new poll from Reuters/Ispos.
The poll found that the law’s favorability rose by 5 points after the ruling, from 43 percent to 48 percent. Opposition to the law, while still representing the majority opinion, dropped from 57 percent to 52 percent.
The law was upheld last Thursday in a 5-4 ruling, with Chief Justice John Roberts, a Bush appointee, siding with the high Court’s more progressive Justices.
The online survey was conducted between June 28th and 30th among 991 respondents.
