New poll: Americans optimistic about Obamacare, overwhelmingly oppose GOP position

CNN has a very interesting new poll that not only debunks the notion that Americans have already decided Obamacare is a failure, but also reveals that Americans overwhelmingly oppose the GOP's conservative critique of the health care law.
According to the poll (pdf), which surveyed American adults between Nov. 18-20 with a margin of error of ±3.5 points:

Most Americans believe Obamacare's current problems will be solved. 54 percent say they believe current problems will be fixed, compared with 43 percent who say they won't be.
Most Americans believe it's too early to judge whether Obamacare is a success or failure. A total of 53 percent think it is too early to say whether Obamacare is a success or failure. A total of 39 percent think it's a failure and 8 percent already think it is a success.
Most Americans do not support conservative critiques of Obamacare. According to the poll, 41 percent of Americans think Obamacare is too liberal, slightly more than 40 percent who support Obamacare. But 14 percent think it's not liberal enough.
As you might expect, the poll's crosstabs show that most Republicans are certain Obamacare can't be fixed and has already failed, but outside of the GOP universe, people aren't merely open to Obamacare, they are optimistic about its prospects and want it to work.

Obviously, it doesn't matter how open or optimistic the public is if the Obama administration can't ultimately deliver on the promise of Obamacare, but if they do, most Americans are on their side. Republicans have bet everything on failure. If they lose that bet, it will be an absolute political nightmare for them—and it should be.

ONLY 16% believe that health care one year from now will be better because of Obamacare.

Not only OH, be all across this great nation. 60% of the American public now opposes Obamacare.

The public is getting fed up with the lying and gamesmanship by Barack Hussein Obama.
