52% Oppose Repeal of Obamacare If Fixes Can't Be Found

President Trump has urged Congress to repeal Obamacare and fix it later if legislators can't agree on changes to it now. But while most voters agree the health care law hasn't been a success, they would rather leave it as is than throw it out completely.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 41% of Likely U.S. Voters think it would be better for Congress and the president to repeal the existing health care law completely and start over if they cannot agree on what fixes to make. But 52% say it would be better to leave Obamacare alone until they can come to an agreement on changes. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
