Poll: 4 out of 10 Americans living in state of blissful ignorance about Obamacare law

I’ll go out on a limb and guess that a majority of these 40-plus percent voted for Obama (if they voted at all):

A new poll finds that many Americans are confused about the health care overhaul legislation commonly called “Obamacare.”

The Kaiser Family Foundation released results of a non-partisan study today finding more than 40 percent did not even know the law was in place.

“Four in ten Americans (42%) are unaware that the ACA [Affordable Care Act] is still the law of the land,” the report says, “including 12 percent who believe the law has been repealed by Congress, 7 percent who believe it has been overturned by the Supreme Court and 23 percent who say they don’t know enough to say what the status of the law is.”

The survey showed public opinion on Obamacare is at its second-lowest rating in the past two years.

Will Democrats from Obama on down immediately call for an all-out public awareness campaign reminding this 42 percent that the inexpensive and high quality health care that was promised them in 2008 is finally available by law — and millions will soon face a health care penalty “tax”? There’s a better chance Joe Biden will finish the rest of the year without saying anything stupid. Heading into 2014, the above polling data is good news for the Democrats. Four out of ten people don’t know Obamacare is the law, and therefore aren’t expecting anything yet, which could translate to less angry backlash for the botched implementation:

Anxious Democrats fear a botched implementation of ObamaCare could dash their hopes of controlling the House and Senate for President Obama’s last two years in office.

At his press conference Tuesday, Obama acknowledged “glitches and bumps” in the law’s rollout, but some congressional Democrats fear much worse.

One high-ranking Democrat told The Hill that it is his leading concern.

The Dems number one focus will be to delay the inevitable train wreck until after 2014 while figuring out a way to blame it on Republicans.
