(NaturalNews) A new poll conducted under the guidance of marketing research groups Anderson Robbins and Shaw & Company has found that a majority of Americans want nothing to do with the socialized medicine scheme more popularly known as Obamacare. Based on a random sampling of more than 1,000 registered voters, professional pollsters found that 53 percent of Americans, including Democrats, are anticipating worse quality and more expensive healthcare for their families once Obamacare comes into full effect.

Despite its official designation as the Affordable Care Act, Obamacare will be anything but affordable for many of the people that will be forced to purchase it. According to the figures, nearly all registered Republicans, or 85 percent, and more than half, or 51 percent, of registered Independents estimate that they will be much worse off as a result of Obamacare. But what might come as a shock to some is the fact that nearly one-quarter of all Democrats also believe that Obamacare will impact their families for the worse.

"Young voters and seniors are pessimistic about Obamacare," writes Dana Blanton for Fox News about the findings. "Majorities of those under age 35 and those 65-plus think things will be worse under the 2010 health care law."

Overall, an astounding 56 percent of those polled said they wished we could all go back to the days before Obamacare when health insurance was "more affordable." Only 34 percent of poll participants said they want to continue moving forward with implementing the nationwide "tax" on health insurance - the Supreme Court, as you may recall, recently ruled that Obamacare's individual mandate and its associated fine for non-compliance are a legal "tax."

Interestingly, opposition to Obamacare was pretty evenly distributed among both people with college degrees and people with minimal education. Men, women, and people from both high and low income brackets were also represented among those opposed to Obamacare's continued implementation, indicating that the issue is neither partisan nor segregated - people from all backgrounds said they wished healthcare could return to the days before the government was involved in its distribution.

Most American voters also says budget sequestration was a bad idea

The same poll also asked voters how they felt about the federal government's recent budget sequestration measures, and an even higher percentage said they disagreed with Obama's actions in the matter. According to the data, 61 percent of voters said the budget cuts implemented by Obama and Congress were a bad way to deal with the country's financial problems. Republicans, Independents, and Democrats alike said they view the cuts in a negative light, at 67 percent, 61 percent, and 57 percent, respectively.

Likewise, the percentage of people who say Obama's ideas for the country are "bad," and that too many of them have been implemented, has risen by more than 32 percent, according to the figures. As reported by Fox News, 37 percent of voters were opposed to Obama's policies two years ago, but that percentage has risen to 49 percent, or nearly half, today. There are also far few voters today who say they support Obama's policies compared to two years ago.

"[I]n 2009, 71 percent of Americans thought that the health care system was so bad that it needed at least a major overhaul," writes Senior Editorial Writer Philip Klein for WashingtonExaminer.com. "Now, a majority of Americans are saying that they'd rather go back to life under that crappy 2009 system than be forced to live under Obamacare."
