Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

It is surely worse than a proper full coverage system, but could you go into details on what makes it horrible, especially in comparison to no insurance at all?

The only point you made is the Republican talking point about polls, which is a red herring: what would count here is not the views of the general public (which is heavily coloured by party politics), but the views of those directly affected. When 43% of voters believe the unemployment rate has increased while Obama was President, it's no wonder if a similar percentage takes its view of Obamacare from Fox News.

I also wonder how your distaste for Obamacare can trump all other issues and make you vote for a misogynist racist warmonger scam artist trust fund baby. He may take semi-progressive views on health care or tariffs on the campaign trail, but his only real economic policy is tax cuts.

Here is an interesting in-depth analysis of the meaning of Obamacare polls from last year (unfortunately, but typpically for Third Millennium USA, mostly an analysis of delusions).
Also, even in the general population, just how unpopular is Obamacare?
