Most See Major Changes in Obamacare As Likely

Voters are a little more protective of Obamacare now that Congress is debating its future, but most still believe big changes in the law are likely in the next few months.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 18% of Likely U.S. Voters now feel Congress and President Trump should leave the law as it is. That’s up from 12% in early January and the highest level of support for the existing law in three years.

But a sizable majority still wants at least some changes in the law, with 51% who think Congress and the president should go through the law piece by piece to improve it and 25% who say they should repeal the entire thing and start over again. Support for complete repeal, however, is at a new low, down from a high of 40% last October. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
