New Fox Polls Show Obamacare Remains Important Issue for 2014 Midterms

Brand new Fox polls to digest today. Most voters say Obamacare will play a role in their vote in this year's elections, and over half are more inclined to back the candidate who opposes the health care law. In general, the poll shows more voters continue to dislike than like the health care law -- as has been the case in the Fox News poll going back to April 2010.

Republicans (36 percent) are more likely than Democrats (25 percent) and independents (25 percent) to say they are "extremely" interested in this year's elections. Some 15 percent of voters approve of the job current lawmakers are doing. That's the highest approval rating Congress has received this year. Still, 76 percent disapprove.
