Although healthcare reform is still extremely controversial, a recent poll showed that Americans’ outlook on the law became more positive in June.

The Kaiser Family Foundation’s polling showed that 48% of respondents were now in favor of the bill, an increase of 7% from the month before. Opposition decreased by three percentage points, to 41%.

Why the change of heart? There are several contributing factors. For one thing, the political heat has somewhat died down–other issues have taken the spotlight. Meanwhile, the Obama administration had launched a public relations campaign, which drew attention to the beneficial affordable health insurance-related provisions taking effect this year.
