Obamacare Poll You'll Probably NEVER See

Here are some Obamacare poll numbers you won't hear about from mainstream media.
According to the [CNN/ORC poll] released on Wednesday, four in 10 say they support the law, with 58% opposed. Those figures are little changed from a CNN poll a month ago, just two weeks into the rough start up of HealthCare.gov and mostly before the controversy over insurance policy cancellations due primarily to the new health law.But 41% say they oppose the law because they think it's too liberal, with 14% saying the measure doesn't go far enough. That means that 54% either support Obamacare, or say it's not liberal enough.

And if that's not enough to scare the Hell out of Republicans who are desperate to destroy Obamacare...
"Only 25% of 18-to-34 year olds say that the new law is a failure, compared to more than four in 10 in any other age bracket. Seven in 10 younger Americans think the current problems faced by Obamacare will eventually be fixed. Senior citizens are split, and most people between 35 and 65 years old think that the system is permanently broken," said CNN Polling Director Keating Holland.
Again, you'll never see this poll covered on "Good Morning America", "CBS This Morning", or even "The TODAY Show".  That's because mainstream media outlets have so invested themselves (and their ratings) in the narrative that Obamacare is a total failure that they continually ignore all of the success stories of people who've signed up for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act.  Furthermore, they refuse to debunk the outright lies coming from right-wing media outlets to whom they otherwise wouldn't give an ounce of credence.  It's this kind of blatant lazy-journalism, where they just regurgitate whatever story sounds juicy enough to draw viewers, that makes mainstream media complicit in Republican efforts to deny millions of uninsured Americans access to affordable health care.  It also serves as proof-positive that the mainstream media is NOT liberal, despite FOX News' attempts to convince everyone that it is.
