Pew went deeper — examining the number of media mentions for the three most common concepts pushed by proponents and opponents of the law.

In fact, there were more than twice as many mentions of “more government involvement” than of “insuring pre-existing conditions”, which has long been one of the Obama Administration’s signature talking points in support of the law.

“Opponents of the reform won the so-called ‘messaging war’ in the coverage,” according to a Pew memo analyzing the results.
