WASHINGTON, Oct. 14 (UPI) -- While most U.S. voters say they don't like the new healthcare law, they also said it hasn't impacted them so far, a Rasmussen Reports poll indicated.

Forty-seven percent of likely U.S. voters said they had at least a somewhat favorable opinion of the Affordable Care Act while 52 percent said they viewed it somewhat unfavorably, results released Monday indicated.

Fifty-four percent say the law has had no impact on them, Rasmussen said, while 15 percent said they've been helped and 27 percent said they have been hurt by the law.

One in four voters said their health insurance coverage changed because of the law, while 62 percent said they've had no change in their coverage and 13 percent said they were unsure.

Results are based on a national survey of 1,000 likely voters conducted Saturday and Sunday. The margin of error is 3 percentage points.
