Republicans have far less favorable views than Democrats of the fines the law imposes for not meeting specific requirements. For example, while 83% of Democrats have a favorable opinion of requiring employers with 50 or more employees to provide health insurance or risk a fine, that compares with just 45% of Republicans. A similar partisan gap is evident over the least popular provision of the ACA, its requirement that nearly all Americans should have health insurance or risk being fined: 57% of Democrats have a favorable opinion of this, compared with 30% of independents and just 21% of Republicans.
