In total, 45 per cent of Americans are misinformed about the fact the Supreme Court upheld most of Obamacare last week in one of the most controversial rulings in recent memory.From June 28 through July 1, the Pew Research centre asked 1,006 adults what they thought of last week’s ruling.

And the results were a bit shocking.

A whopping 30 per cent of Americans admitted that they have absolutely no idea what the Supreme Court did to Obamacare, according to the research centre.

And an additional 15 per cent wrongly believe the high court actually struck down most of President Barack Obama’s historic health care reform.

Somehow, despite the fact that so many Americans don’t know which way the court ruled, the health care decision was the second biggest story of 2012.

40-five per cent of Americans followed news about the decision very closely, the survey found.
