A recent Bloomberg News poll reveals that 42 percent of adults oppose the Affordable Care Act (ACA) because it went too far, with 52 percent opposing the individual mandate. However, only 33 percent believe Congress should repeal the law. The survey shows that 65 percent of respondents think insurers should be banned from denying coverage based on preexisting conditions, and 55 percent are against lifetime caps on medical care. However, 60 percent of those polled had not experienced any real change since the law's implementation.

Respondents were evenly split when asked whether a candidate’s support for the healthcare law would make them more or less likely to vote for him or her. Thirty-nine percent said they would be less likely to back someone who wants to keep the healthcare law, while 38 percent said they would be more likely to support that candidate.
