NBC News Exit Poll Results: Large Share of Voters Feel Obamacare Went Too Far

Posted: Updated:

According to early NBC News Exit Poll data, voters nationwide are divided about the federal health care law known as Obamacare. A 45 percent plurality of voters nationwide feel that the federal health care law went too far, but a slightly larger share say that either it was about right or did not go far enough.

This issue has been a vulnerability for Hillary Clinton, as she has vowed to improve but largely preserve Obamacare, despite the recent announcement of large premium cost increases in several states. Since it became law, public opinion about Obamacare has tended to be more negative than positive, though in the early exit poll, opinion is more evenly divided.

Not surprisingly, voters feeling that the law went too far are breaking decisively for Trump, 80 percent to 13 percent.
