New poll spells trouble for Republicans?

At least it appears so on it's face. A Kaiser health tracking poll found that
a majority of Americans (56 percent) now say they would like to see the law’s detractors stop their efforts to block its implementation and move on to other national problems.

What went unreported however, is that among those polled, support for the Supreme Court's decision is basically split: 47% approve - 44% disapprove (3% margin for error). And Republicans have a slight edge on enthusiasm:
...to the extent that the court’s decision to uphold the law does motivate people to vote, higher shares of Republicans say the result makes them more likely to turn out on election day than Democrats (31 percent compared to 18 percent).
Now let's apply a little commonsense. Elections and issues aren't decided in a vacuum. This will be largely a referendum on Obama. While incumbents typically have a significant advantage, in my opinion this decision only serves to fuel the Republican base and ease Democrats' fears.

Repealing Obamacare on the other hand, is an entirely different story.
