    A new Washington Post-ABC News poll finds that a record 54% of Americans oppose Obamacare–the highest disapproval rating ever in the Post-ABC poll–and a six point increase in unpopularity since last year.

    Support for President Barack Obama’s unpopular signature legislative achievement registered at just 39%, which “ties the record low” as seen in April 2012.

    You failed to note the poll was August 1, 2014.

    How about more recent data?

    I may have missed it, but I see nothing in your link stating when the poll was taken. I did find the 54% in an old poll.

    Your quote does not tell the whole story. From an article linked to your article:

    Salty, I noted that also. However, none of those polls are current. I have searched but have not found a poll taken within the last 6 months. There may be one or more, but I have not found it.

    And what reason is there to believe that the fiasco has gotten more popular? It will only get worse under Hillary because she would never tell the truth about anything.

    That is one of the glitchiest websites around and I think any Obamacare poll now is essentially meaningless but I did find it:
