57% of Voters Favor Repeal of Health Care Law, 38% Opposed

Most voters continue to strongly favor repeal of the national health care law and they’re evenly divided as to whether the new law will force them to change insurance coverage.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 57% of Likely Voters at least somewhat favor repeal of the health care law while 38% are at least somewhat opposed. Those figures include 45% who Strongly Favor repeal and 31% who Strongly Oppose repeal. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Earlier polling has shown that 75% of voters want the health care law changed, but even most of those who want it repealed would like something new to replace it.

Among voters who have health insurance, 44% say it’s likely they will have to change their insurance coverage while 46% think it’s unlikely. These findings are broadly consistent with findings for most of the past two years. However, last month, following a wave of publicity about new provisions of the law taking effect, only 34% were concerned that they might be forced to switch coverage.
