Latest poll results for Obama-care as of Feb. 6.

"The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 54% of Likely Voters at least somewhat favor repeal of the health care law, while 41% oppose repeal."
http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/current_events/healthcare/health_care_law

Not quite 65% favor Obama-care, but I am certain there are probably polls out there that you can find that support your belief, regardless of what it is. The thing with polls is, people's opinions tend to be influenced by them. What does that tell you? The more you poll with a particular result as your objective, the more likely it is that you will cause a trend to occur and that trend will continue the more you publicize it.

Nothing has changed in the law, and much has been discovered about how bad it really is, so why then would people be gradually changing their opinion of it?

That is partly the effect of time and attention span, but largely because the full effect of it has not been realized by many voters. I personally have seen my insurance premiums go through the roof since it passed. We had to drop one plan because it became so expensive. Many have not yet had this happen yet, maybe due to losing their jobs and many have been hired by the federal government and have seen no change. Until you get sick and need a doctor and can't find one or have to wait for 4 hours for an appointment, you won't realize what damage the law has done. Until you are told by the death panel bureaucrats that you should just go home and die, you might not think there is much wrong with the government running health care. If you are a 25 year old loser living with your parents, you might think it's great that you still have coverage.... until they get the bill for the increased premiums to pay for it.

And never forget the power of the media to influence opinion. Give the media enough time and they can convince people that the sun revolves around the Earth and that man is causing it to boil.
