Partisanship Remains the Strongest Predictor of Overall Views of the ACA

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) now is gaining more popularity than ever, yet the overall partisan divide has gotten larger, according to a recent study published in Health Affairs. The researchers studied 102 public opinion polls between April 2010 and November 2019, and found that the average annual partisan gap in ACA favorability reached 64.1 percentage points in 2019, compared to 55.7 percentage points in 2010. While a majority of Republicans don’t favor the law, many of its individual provisions have remained popular even on a bipartisan basis. Graphics below show how the public opinions on the ACA changed over the past 10 years.
