ARLINGTON, Va., June 12 (UPI) -- Voters expect to have problems with the Affordable Care Act when fully implemented, but do not want to see it repealed, a poll released Wednesday indicates.

The survey, conducted by a bipartisan team of pollsters and released on the website The Morning Conduit, found 34 percent of likely voters in favor of repealing the act known as Obamacare, with 8 percent wanting Congress to delay or defund the law.

By contrast 52 percent want the law to take effect or see only minor changes to improve it, the political journalism organization Politico noted, adding the survey shows higher approval ratings for the law than in the past, but consistent with an overall trend which leans negative.

The poll of a national sample of 1,000 likely voters was taken May 22-26 by Republican pollster John McLaughlin of McLaughlin & Associates, and Democratic pollster Margie Omero of Momentum analysis, The Morning Conduit said.
