Obamacare hits a new low in popularity. But it’s not a dominant issue. – The Washington Post

A new poll shows Obamacare is more unpopular than ever. What it also shows: That it’s not really a big voting issue heading into the final three months of the 2014 campaign.

The Kaiser Family Foundation tracking poll, which has been keeping constant tabs on public sentiment on the Affordable Care Act for nearly four years, shows 53 percent of Americans now have an unfavorable impression of the law. That’s the highest on record and an increase of eight percentage points in one month.

What’s most interesting, though, is that even as it shows a sharp uptick in opposition to Obamacare, it shows Americans really don’t prioritize health care that much when it comes to the upcoming election.

Just 40 percent of Americans say President Obama and Congress are paying too little attention to health care as an issue. That ranks behind all manner of different issues, including education, the deficit, immigration and taxes — and even the situation in Iraq.
