Obamacare has unexpected boosters: the politicians who hate Obamacare.
The more Washington Republicans have fought the unpopular Affordable Care Act, the more popular it has paradoxically become, according to a Wall Street Journal/NBC poll last week.
The partial government shutdown — precipitated by the GOP over Obamacare — and the DC brinksmanship over the nation’s debt limit has started to damage Republicans much more than Democrats.
The Republican Party’s approval ratings now stand at historic lows, according to Gallup and the Journal/NBC polls.
“That is an ideological boomerang,” Bill McInturff, a GOP pollster who helped conduct the Journal/NBC survey with a Democratic pollster, told NBC.
