    interview segment in that form back in October, noting that polling had been done showing that people who hated Obamacare loved what's in it.

    Here is one of those actual polls, by CNBC, from Sept. 2013.

    Political Ticker: Poll: 'Obamacare' vs. 'Affordable Care Act'

    According to a new CNBC poll that surveyed two different groups, 46% of the group that was asked about "Obamacare" was opposed to the law, while 37% of the group asked about the "Affordable Care Act" was opposed to the law.

    At the same time, more people support "Obamacare" (29%) than those who support ACA (22%.) In other words, having "Obama" in the name "raises the positives and the negatives," as CNBC put it.

    It's also important to note that 30% didn't know what the ACA was, compared to 12% who weren't familiar with Obamacare, according to the poll.
