CNN poll: Less than 1 in 5 better off because of Obamacare

The latest CNN/ORC poll finds Obama underwater with only 42% approving and 55% disapproving of his job performance. His approval is down one point since the last poll but at least he can pride himself on doing better than his signature legislation, Obamacare. Only 40% approve of Obamacare while 59% disapprove.
When asked the question:
From what you know of that legislation, do you think you and your family are, in general, better off, worse off or about the same now that the major provisions of the health care law have taken effect?
Less than 1 in 5 of respondents answered they were better off-18% while 35% answered worse off (about 1 in 3) and 46% saw no change. I like those odds going into the midterm elections. Almost twice as many people are harmed than helped by the law. By November the influx of illegals could abate and things could settle in the Middle East but this issue has staying power. When more people make the connection to cuts in Medicare's Home Health Services and cuts to Medicare Advantage and Obamacare more will feel harmed. It's smart politics for Republicans to vehemently campaign against Obamacare and I'm sure both parties know that.
