Poll: Latinos souring on Obamacare

The Washington Post reports:
A new poll shows Latinos -- a fast-growing and key demographic in American elections -- aren't as fond of Obamacare as they once were.

The Pew Research Center poll showed Hispanics are split on whether they approve of President Obama's health-care law, with 47 percent approving and 47 percent disapproving.

The numbers are notable because Latinos have generally been among the health-care law's chief supporters. Other polls have shown they supported the law by a 2-to-1 margin, and a September 2013 poll, before the law's implementation, showed 61 percent of Hispanics approved of it.

Another key minority group that tilts strongly Democratic -- African American voters -- back the law 77-18.
No word yet on whether Nancy Pelosi believes the Koch brothers are financing this poll.
