Gallup: More Public Knows About ObamaCare, More They Oppose It

The title of Gallup's latest ObamaCare poll is about how young people are the least familiar with the law. The buried lead, though, is the finding that the more people learn about ObamaCare, the more they oppose it. 

Gallup notes that those "familiar with the healthcare law are significantly more likely to oppose it than those who are not familiar with it." Those familiar with ObamaCare disapprove of the law by a margin of 59-40%. Those unfamiliar are almost evenly split at 41% approve, 43% disapprove.

Gallup adds that the -19% gap in approval among those familiar with ObamaCare is a higher negative than what you see in polls of the general public.

Over the next 20 days, President Obama has vowed to make 20 public appearances as a way to spread the news about ObamaCare, and encourage sign ups. If Gallup's polling is correct, this could drive disapproval of ObamaCare up even further.

It is almost certain that when voters are able to sign into the ObamaCare exchanges -- where most will be faced with the brutal reality of overpriced premiums, sky-high deductibles, and a lousy choice of doctors -- that disapproval will increase even further.

The American public never liked the idea of ObamaCare. This Gallup poll shows that for a vast majority of users (to coin a White House phrase), the reality is even worse.

The Republicans are missing a bet here. They ought take a page from Obama's playbook and form "Truth Squads" that follow him wherever he goes and refute whatever he says with the facts about ObamaCare.

The GOP is so bleeped up with their heads in the sand it isn't even a race to the bottom of the sand pile.
