How Republicans hate `anything` named Obama!
Washington: Despite being the same thing, Republicans` support for President Barack Obama`s healthcare legislation was higher when it was identified as the `Affordable Care Act` than for `Obamacare`, a new poll has found.
Republicans` support for the 2010 healthcare law jumped eight points to 22 percent from 14 percent when it was referred to by its actual name rather than `Obamacare`, Fox News Poll found.
According to the New York Daily News, still, support among Republicans for the Affordable Care Act was not all that robust.
Just 22 percent of GOP voters said they supported the ACA, as compared with the 14 percent who said they supported Obamacare.
Independent voters were slightly less swayed by the name used in the question, with the ACA receiving four percent more support than Obamacare.
Democrats, meanwhile, gave the ACA a one percentage point edge over ` Obamacare`.
