BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — A Montana State University Billings poll found that nearly 57 percent of Montanans oppose the Affordable Care Act, but 69 percent opposed shutting down the government as a way to defund it.

MSU Billings students interviewed 410 Montanans by telephone between Oct. 7-10, calling both land lines and cellphones. It has a margin of error of 5 percentage points.

Sixty-nine percent of those polled disapproved of President Barack Obama’s performance, while 29 percent approved.

Fifty-three percent approve of Gov. Steve Bullock’s performance while 33 percent were undecided. U.S. Sens. Max Baucus and Jon Tester had similar numbers, with approval ratings of about 44 percent and disapproval ratings of 39 percent. Thirty-nine percent of those polled approved of Rep. Steve Daines job performance while 37 percent were undecided.
