Only 1 In 4 Americans Want Health Care Repeal; 43% Want Stronger Reform

Posted by | January 17, 2011 09:09 | Filed under: Top Stories

A new AP-Gfk poll shows strong opposition to health care reform is down to 30%, while 41% overall oppose the law.

The poll finds that 40 percent of those surveyed said they support the law, while 41 percent oppose it. Just after the November congressional elections, opposition stood at 47 percent and support was 38 percent.

As for repeal, only about one in four say they want to do away with the law completely. Among Republicans support for repeal has dropped sharply, from 61 percent after the elections to 49 percent now.

Also, 43 percent say they want the law changed so it does more to re-engineer the health care system. Fewer than one in five say it should be left as it is.

Republicans ran for office, and won, with the premise that Democrats were not listening to the will of the American people.  Will the newly-empowered GOP now listen?
