For the first time since President Barack Obama won re-election, his signature health-care law may have slightly more fans than foes, a new poll shows.
The Kaiser Health Tracking poll, released Tuesday, found that 43 percent of the public said they have a favorable opinion of the Affordable Care Act. That compares with 42 percent who said they view the law negatively.
The 1 percentage point gap is within the poll's margin of error and is not statistically significant, the Kaiser Family Foundation said.
Nonetheless, the results follow several months of that gap narrowing, and mark the first time since Obama's November 2012 re-election that the number of people with a favorable view on the law has topped those with an unfavorable view.

"I think what we're seeing is a sort of a return to the normal state" of public opinion about the health law, said Mollyann Brodie, who oversees the poll for Kaiser.
"This narrowing of opinion is occurring at the same time there hasn't been a lot of bad news about the law," she said.
The survey, which questioned 1,506 adults and had a sampling error of plus or minus 3 percentage points, also comes amid signs that the Republican push to repeal the Affordable Care Act has lost steam.
