A snap poll from Gallup shows Americans are evenly split on the Supreme Court's ruling on President Obama's signature legislative accomplishment, the 2010 Affordable Care Act. Forty-six percent said the Court made the right decision, while 46 percent said the disagreed with it. Indpendent voters were mostly likely to agree with the result by a small margin, 45 percent to 42 perecent.
But overall, Americans polled expressed a fairly cynical view of the decision:
64% of Americans say politics played too great a role in the court's decision, while 29% disagree. The vast majority of those who disagree with the decision, 84%, believe politics played too great a role, but so do nearly half of those who agree with the decision, 47%.
Accordingly, 80% of Republicans believe politics played too big a role, compared with 67% of independents and 47% of Democrats.
