    One-Third Donít Know Obamacare and Affordable Care Act Are the Same.

    A sizable minority of Americans don’t understand that Obamacare is just another name for the Affordable Care Act.

    This finding, from a poll by Morning Consult, illustrates the extent of public confusion over a health law that President Trump and Republicans in Congress hope to repeal.

    In the survey, 35 percent of respondents said either they thought Obamacare and the Affordable Care Act were different policies (17 percent) or didn’t know if they were the same or different (18 percent). This confusion was more pronounced among people 18 to 29 and those who earn less than $50,000 — two groups that could be significantly affected by repeal.

    Among Republicans, a higher percentage (72 percent) said they knew Obamacare and the A.C.A. were the same, which may reflect the party’s longstanding hostility to the law.

    When respondents were asked what would happen if Obamacare were repealed, even more people were stumped. Approximately 45 percent did not know that the A.C.A. would be repealed. Twelve percent of Americans said the A.C.A. would not be repealed, and 32 percent said they didn’t know.

    ya know, if this weren't so tragic it would be funny. People who voted for Trump are realizing that he's about to take away their healthcare. They screwed up putting Trump into office. Now, the Republicans' have installed a huge tax breaks for the rich and the insurance company. While the poor in America are going to pay for it. In some cases with their very lives.

    You can hardly underestimate the stupidity of the American voter.

    MORE THAN 1/3 can't name the vice president or either of their US Senators.

    Probably more than 2/3rds.
