The results of a new poll from the Foundation for Government Accountability may surprise you — or they may not.

The poll was conducted in late August in the state of Arkansas. 500 likely voters, of all demographics and political ideologies, answered a series of questions about the ObamaCare law.

As it turns out, despite what the media wants us all to believe, voters are still very motivated by ObamaCare, particularly when they’re informed about the real-world impact it’s having — and it’s not just conservatives that show strong opposition to Washington’s health-care takeover.

Here’s what we found:

More than 60% of all likely Arkansas voters say they are unlikely to support a candidate in the 2014 election who supports ObamaCare
60% of Arkansas independent voters oppose ObamaCare
61% of Arkansas women and 61% of Arkansas seniors oppose ObamaCare
Over 80% of Arkansas independents say they’re less supportive of ObamaCare because of its nearly $1 trillion cuts to Medicare
A majority of Arkansas men and women “completely distrust government agencies”
62% of independents are unlikely to support a pro-ObamaCare candidate this November

New Hampshire Poll – $716 Billion in Cuts to Medicare Sour Support for ObamaCare

October 10th, 2014 / Kristina Ribali / 0 comments

Candidates looking to win with a pro-ObamaCare, pro-Medicaid expansion platform should rethink their strategy. Nearly 80 percent of New Hampshire’s independent voters say ObamaCare will impact their voting decisions this November, with the vast majority of them opposed to the big-government health care takeover, according to a Foundation for Government Accountability (FGA) poll released today.

A big reason for the frustration with ObamaCare is the continuing cuts to care for seniors enrolled in Medicare Advantage plans. The federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services have proposed further cuts for 2015, hitting the highly-popular program with double-digit reductions in just two years. This means many of the nearly 16,000 New Hampshirites covered by Medicare Advantage plans will find their plans cancelled or lose access to their doctors, all to help fund ObamaCare’s Medicaid expansion programs for working-age, able-bodied adults.

“ObamaCare is a looming storm on the horizon, and not just for politicians, but for everyone in New Hampshire,” said FGA CEO Tarren Bragdon.

Maine Poll: As Insurance Premiums Skyrocket, Obamacare Popularity Plummets

October 10th, 2014 / Kristina Ribali / 0 comments

Over 80 percent of likely voters in Maine say a candidate’s position on ObamaCare will impact their votes, giving pro-ObamaCare, pro-Medicaid expansion candidates plenty to worry about this November, according to a Foundation for Government Accountability poll released today. And if that isn’t enough to make them nervous, a whopping 62 percent of unenrolled voters say they are unlikely to support pro-ObamaCare candidates.

Mainers are tired of the broken promises about ObamaCare, like President Obama’s often repeated promise to reduce premiums by $2,500 per family per year. As Maine heads into its second year of premium increases, not savings, even the state’s Democrats are moving away from supporting the law.

October 7th, 2014 / Kristina Ribali / 1 comment

Over 60 percent of likely voters in Arkansas say they are unlikely to support a candidate who supports ObamaCare in the upcoming election, meaning candidates who support or helped pass Arkansas’ Private Option Medicaid expansion have a target on their backs this November, according to a Foundation for Government Accountability poll released today.

“ObamaCare is clearly a disaster for Arkansas: It’s bad for the budget, it’s costly for taxpayers, it’s dangerous for patients, and it’s a time bomb for politicians,” said FGA CEO Tarren Bragdon.
