A majority of Americans believes it's too soon to label the Affordable Care Act a failure and that the problems that have plagued the law's rollout will eventually be fixed, according to a poll released Wednesday.

The latest CNN/ORC International poll poll showed that 53 percent of Americans think it's too early to characterize the health care law as a failure, while 54 percent expressed optimism that the problems currently plaguing Obamacare be resolved.

Almost four in 10 called the law a failure and 45 percent said its flaws will never be fixed.

The survey also showed a majority of Americans (58 percent) are opposed to the Affordable Care Act — a continuation of a recent trend —but the pollsters provided context for the source of the opposition.

Forty-one percent said they oppose the law because it's too liberal, while 14 percent said it isn't liberal enough. As CNN noted, this means that 54 percent either support the Affordable Care Act or believe it isn't liberal enough.

How come you left out this statement from the CNN article?

"A CNN/ORC International poll also indicates nearly six in 10 Americans oppose the national health care law"

Like usual you distort the truth. Nothing new, you are the most dishonest poster on Topix.

The full sentence, which you cut in half, said:

"A CNN/ORC International poll also indicates nearly six in 10 Americans oppose the national health care law, but some give the Affordable Care Act a thumbs down because it isn't liberal enough."

Your statement is false.

You again are wrong. My statement is a direct quote from the article. You omitted that statement. Why?

The question is not too difficult for you is it?

BTW, I really don't care why anyone opposes Obamacare. Everyone should oppose it for their own reasons. And 60% of the population is now opposed to it.

Do you think we can hit 80% by year's end?
