Poll: 1 in 3 Don't Know ObamaCare & Affordable Care Act Are the Same
35 percent of Americans don't know that ObamaCare is just another name for the Affordable Care Act, according to a new poll from Morning Consult published by The New York Times.
17 percent of respondents said they thought ObamaCare and the ACA were different policies, while 18 percent said they didn't know if they were the same or different.
According to the poll, the “confusion was more pronounced” among those aged 18 to 29 and those who earn less than $50,000 a year.
Among Republicans, a higher percentage (72 percent) said they knew Obamacare and the ACA were the same.
Confusion about former President Barack Obama's signature health care law has been "persistent," the Times wrote.
Several years ago, "Jimmy Kimmel Live" did a humorous man-on-the-street segment that poked fun at people who thought ObamaCare and the ACA were different.
The Morning Consult poll also found that 45 percent of respondents did not know the law might soon be repealed.
