Voters Like Obamacare if You Call It Something Else

The latest Marist poll in Kentucky finds that registered voters dislike Obamacare by a wide margin, 57% to 33%.

However, when voters were asked to give their impression of "kynect," the state exchange created as a result of the health care law, the picture was quite different with a plurality in favor, 29% to 22%.

Said pollster Lee Miringoff: "Call it something else, and the negatives drop."

Greg Sargent noted last month one Democratic House candidate "is running a new ad hitting Republicans specifically for wanting to end Kentucky Kynect, as opposed to wanting to repeal Obamacare."
