Oba­macare is still on the list of pub­lic vex­a­tions, a full five years af­ter the health­care pro­gram sprang to life, pro­moted with pub­lic out­reach that in­cluded “Pa­jama Boy” and at­trac­tive mod­els wan­der­ing city streets clad only in their un­der­wear, bear­ing signs that read “Get cov­ered.” Yes, well. Here are the cur­rent num­bers:

“One of the cen­tral tenets of the new na­tional health care law is that ev­ery Amer­i­can must have health in­sur­ance, but sup­port for that re­quire­ment has fallen to its low­est level in Ras­mussen Re­ports’ polling to date,” the poll­ster of the same name re­ports. “Our lat­est na­tional tele­phone sur­vey finds that just 32 per­cent of likely U.S. vot­ers be­lieve the gov­ern­ment should re­quire ev­ery Amer­i­can to buy or ob­tain health in­sur­ance. Most vot­ers — 56 per­cent — con­tinue to op­pose Oba­macare’s in­sur­ance re­quire­ment, but this is the high­est level of op­po­si­tion in nearly two years.”
