The latest Kaiser Family Foundation health tracking poll finds the lowest support for repeal of the Affordable Care Act ever. In this poll, conducted right after the election, KFF found support for repeal at an all time low.

That doesn't mean that America is suddenly in love with Obamacare, though. The support/oppose numbers remain in the range they've been in since the law was passed, with a slight tick up in support: 43 percent view the law favorably and 39 percent view it unfavorably. It's now up to 49 percent of the public who either support expanding the law or keeping it as.

Also of note in the poll, large percentages of respondents "named a variety of health issues as a major factor in their vote, including: the future of the Medicare program (70 percent), the ACA (69 percent), the future of Medicaid (61 percent), and the candidates’ views on women’s health issues (57 percent)." President Obama won those voters who listed health issues as a key factor in their vote 55 percent to 41 percent.

The fight is basically over, now that the Supreme Court and the American people have spoken. Now the question will be if Republican governors decide to give it up and start helping their residents.
