53% Favor Repeal of Health Care Law, 49% Say Measure Bad For Country

Monday, June 20, 2011

Voters continue to support repeal of the national health care law and feel the new law will be bad for the country. But they also tend to agree that it won't force them to change their existing health insurance coverage.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 53% of Likely Voters at least somewhat favor repeal of the health care law, while 42% at least somewhat oppose it.  Those figures include 38% who Strongly Favor repeal and 27% who are Strongly Opposed.

Support for repeal shows little change from a week ago.  Most voters have supported repeal every week but one since Congress passed the law in March of last year, with that support running as high as 63%.
