Poll: Health care law getting more popular

As we pointed out earlier this week, the Obama White House keeps talking about the economy and health care -- because even if they're unpopular in the short run, they're hoping attitudes change in the long run.

And that seems to be the case with the health-care law.

A new Kaiser Family Foundation poll, the Washington Post reports, shows that 50% have a favorable view of the law, versus 35% who hold a negative view.

The approval level was the highest for the legislation since it was enacted in March, after a divisive year-long debate. In April, the poll found 46 percent in favor and 40 percent opposed.

Though the legislative battle is over, the political tug-of-war continues. Democrats and Republicans have been fighting to shape public opinion on the issue in hopes of influencing the fall elections.
