48% of Wisconsinites don't like Obamacare, MU poll finds

MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - Almost half of Wisconsinites don't like Obamacare -- and three-fourths were against shutting down the federal government to try and weaken or kill the health reform law.  

A new Marquette Law School poll released Tuesday afternoon shows that 48 percent of the 800 voters surveyed last week did not favor the Affordable Care Act. 42 percent support it, and 10 percent still aren't sure what to think. 

76 percent objected to how the shutdown played out -- with Republicans trying to defund Obamacare and Democrats refusing to negotiate or compromise. 19 percent of state voters supported the shutdown tactic. 

Nobody in Congress scored any points on this.

33 percent in the Marquette poll give Democrats in Congress a favorable rating. Only 17 percent did the same for Republicans. 

All of the Obamacare results are beyond a 3.5 percent margin of error on the subject.
