Americans remain split on ObamaCare, former President Obama's signature health care policy, according to a poll released by Gallup on Monday.

Half of the adults surveyed expressed approval of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), while 48 percent disapproved.

The results are similar to those from a Gallup survey in November that found 48 percent approved and 47 percent disapproved.


Across the last five measurements since April 2017, those approving of the legislation have outnumbered those opposing by at least 1 percent.

Support for the ACA is split along party lines, with 85 percent of Democrats in Monday's poll supporting it, while only 10 percent of Republicans approve.

Gallup surveyed 1,012 adults between April 1-9. The margin of error for the sample is 4 percentage points.

The survey comes as the Trump administration has ramped up its opposition to the ACA, with the Department of Justice siding with a district court ruling that found the law unconstitutional.
