A majority of Americans support the Supreme Court's decision to uphold the constitutionality of federal subsidies under Obamacare, according to a new poll.
Just over six in 10 Americans (62 percent) say they approve of the court's decision, according to a new poll from the Kaiser Family Foundation. About one third (32 percent) say they disapprove of the ruling.
As expected, Democrats (82 percent) are more likely to approve of the King v. Burwell decision compared to Republicans, who are more likely to disapprove (62 percent). Independents approved of the decision 61-34.
However, Americans remain split over how they view Obamacare. Forty-three percent view Obamacare favorably, compared to 40 percent who view it unfavorably.
Furthermore, Americans don't think the King v. Burwell decision will end debate on the healthcare law.
Nearly four-fifths (78 percent) say they expect more major battles over Obamacare in the future, compared to 18 percent who think King v. Burwell will be the last. Fifty-one percent think it is important to continue the debate over the healthcare law, compared to 44 percent who say they are tired of hearing about it and think the country should focus elsewhere.
The telephone poll of roughly 1,200 American adults was conducted June 25-29 with a margin of error of plus or minus three percentage points.
