Most U.S. voters continue to support repeal of the national health care law and believe the new law is likely to be repealed.

This includes 41% who Strongly Favor repeal and 28% who Strongly Oppose it. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
The number of voters who favor repeal shows no change from last week. Most voters have favored repeal of the law every week but one since it was passed by Congress in late March of last year. Support for repeal has ranged from 47% to 63%.
The survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on June 10-11, 2011 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.
