madgroupPolls finds support for Democrats plunges once voters experience Obamacare

So much for those liberal predictions that grateful voters would stampede to Democrats to thank them for Obamacare.

A new poll finds Americans with Obamacare policies are abandoning Democrats after experiencing its effects, and a majority want their old policies back.

A new poll by the Foundation for Government Accountability (FGA) finds a 13 point shift away from Democrats among Americans with Obamacare policies, World Net Daily (WND)reports.

Those voters backed Barack Obama over Mitt Romney in 2012, 48 percent to 25 percent.

But after experiencing Obamacare, support for Democrats has collapsed.  Only 35 percent say they plan to vote Democrat for president in 2016.

“It appears enrollment in Obamacare has largely failed to expand the Democratic base: Republicans will likely hold on to the bulk of their exchange voters, with 70 percent saying they will still vote for the Republican nominee. Only 3 percent say they will vote for the Democrat, while 24 percent are undecided and 3 percent say they will vote for another candidate,” the poll finds.

The poll was taken from 715 Obamacare enrollees from the 34 states that have not established health insurance exchanges.  It has a margin of error of 3.66 percentage points.

It also confirms what many already know.  Obamacare enrollment numbers are largely people who were previously insured, but had their policies canceled by Obamacare.

“The survey found 46 percent of HealthCare.gov enrollees were insured before Obamacare, and two-thirds were forced into the program. Some 19 percent had their plans canceled, 29 percent saw their coverage dropped by their employer and 17 percent found their previous plan priced out of their range because of Obamacare changes,” WND reports.

“Two-thirds of the respondents said pre-Obamacare insurance plans should be restored, and insurance should be available anytime, not just when the exchanges want to sell it,” WND reports.

Doing so would cause the entire Obamacare system to crumble, as it runs on compulsion and rationing of care.

The poll also finds Obama was lying when he said Obamacare would reduce premiums by an average of $2,500 a year.

“Overall, the enrollees reported a less-than-positive ObamaCare experience: a majority of them have seen their premiums and out-of-pocket costs increase or remain stagnant,” the FGA reports.
