According to the CNN/ORC International survey, 51% of Americans say they oppose the health care law, while 43% say they favor it. It’s important to note, however, that of those who disagree with the law, only a third oppose it because it’s too liberal, while one in six oppose it because it doesn’t go far enough.So will it now be "increasingly" unpopular, or just "unexpectedly?"
The breakdown falls in line with the poll’s last results in March, when the Supreme Court began hearing oral arguments over the law’s constitutionality.
At issue is the fate of the law’s individual mandate that requires most Americans to purchase health insurance by 2014 or face a financial penalty. During the court’s March hearings, justices showed they were sharply divided in their views on the case.
As for immigration, the new survey indicates three-quarters of Americans support the contentious Arizona law that allows police to arrest or detain suspected illegal immigrants during the enforcement of other laws.
Asked if they support the measure, 75% of respondents say they are in favor of it, while 24% say they are against it, the poll shows.
