Obamacare opposition on the rise

Opposition to President Obama's health-care law is on the rise, according to another new poll.

The Gallup poll shows disapproval of the law rising from 47 percent a couple weeks ago to 55 percent today -- a new high.


Support for the law has also dropped slightly, from 44 percent to 40 percent.

Eleven percent of those who oppose the law say it's because they lost their insurance -- something Obama had said wouldn't happen. Another 16 percent said the law is not working or was poorly planned, and 7 percent said they oppose the law because Obama misled Americans about it.

The poll comes on the heels of a Quinnipiac University poll on Wednesday which also showed a drop in support for Obamacare. Despite weeks of rough headlines, these are the first two polls to show such a drop.

The Quinnipiac poll also showed Obama's approval rating hitting a new low.
