    of all Americans is a fringe opinion. The others are all a variation of "keep it".

      I mean, maybe it's the whole "if you aren't already in the repeal it camp, you might as well be called a supporter of the law".  But that's extrapolating a lot out of the "unsure" group.

      Don't get me wrong, I'm a big ACA defender, but I hardly call 31% at "repeal" and another 26% at "unsure" as excellent news.  Hopefully the numbers gradually move toward our favor as people start using the benefits with new ACA plans.

      •  It's good news as a practical matter, though (0+ / 0-)

        because it means repeal is a loser of a campaign issue, and that means the likelihood of repeal, which will require of majority of something somewhere, becomes vanishingly small.  It's hard to imagine any combination of gerrymanders and population centers that would make repeal likely.

    •  If you consider that to be a fringe opinion, then (0+ / 0-)

      sure, but to be accurate, it was 42% of those who expressed an opinion.
