A new high has been reached of Americans who believe that Obamacare is bad for the country -- 55 percent.

Rasmussen Reports also said that just 35 percent of 1,000 likely voters surveyed in a new Obamacare poll believe that President Obama's trademark legislation and health program is good for America.

A similar 55 percent “also at least somewhat favor repealing the law, while 41 percent are opposed. This includes 43 percent who strongly favor repeal and 31 percent who strongly oppose it,” said the pollster.

“This is the highest number of voters who’ve said the law will be bad for the country in regular surveying since February 2011,” said the pollster who headlined their survey, “55% Favor Repeal of Obamacare.”

In addition, a whopping 71 percent of likely voters believe that Americans should be allowed to keep their current health insurance even if it doesn’t meet Obamacare’s conditions. The president made the promise that nobody would lose their insurance under Obamacare, but thousands are losing it, and the promise has been forced to admit he wasn’t truthful.

Some 74 percent believe that the administration has handled the problems with Obamacare fair to poorly, and 46 percent believe that the president “purposely misled” Americans about the impact of the new law on their lives. Some 45 percent, though, disagreed.
