The poll, released Tuesday, finds that 68 percent of voters are concerned about their health care under the new system. That includes 43 percent “very” concerned and another 25 percent “somewhat” concerned.The Obama administration has been frantically trying to get young people onto Obamacare exchanges in order to prevent a collapse of the legislation but a majority of young people, 60 percent, are skeptical and worry about what will happen to their healthcare under the new system.
The number feeling concerned is more than twice that of those who are unworried (31 percent).
Even a 56-percent majority of Democrats feels concerned (31 percent “very” concerned). By comparison, 72 percent of independents and 77 percent of Republicans feel that way.
The poll also finds a 54-percent majority wants to go back to the health care system that was in place in 2009. About a third -- 35 percent -- thinks it would be better to leave the new law in place.
Monday, a new USA Today/Pew Research Center poll showed a majority disapprove of President Obama's handling of healthcare despite Obamacare being his signature piece of legislation.
