Fewer Voters Expect GOP-Controlled Congress to Repeal Obamacare

U.S. voters are now evenly divided over whether to repeal the new national health care law entirely or fix it piece-by-piece, but voters are growing less certain that a Republican-controlled Congress would actually repeal the law.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 39% of Likely U.S. Voters want Congress to repeal Obamacare in its entirety and start over again. But just as many (40%) think Congress should go through the law piece by piece and improve it. Fifteen percent (15%) want to leave the law as is. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
