Support for the Affordable Care Act has fallen to its lowest point in more than a year, according to a Gallup poll released on Friday.

The survey found that 54 percent disapprove of the healthcare law, against only 38 percent who approve.

The 16-point unfavorable spread is near an all-time high for ObamaCare, and a considerable difference from last month’s 10-point differential, when 51 percent said they disapproved of the law, against 41 who said they approved.

The last time ObamaCare had a positive approval rating coincided with President Obama’s reelection in November 2012, when 48 percent said they approved against 45 percent who said they disapproved.

In addition, 48 percent said they expect ObamaCare will make their lives worse, 35 percent said it would make no difference, and only 12 percent said it would make their lives better.

However, 66 percent said ObamaCare has not impacted them or their families yet.

The survey of 1,020 adults was conducted between Jan. 3-4 and has a 4-percentage-point margin of error.
