U.S. adults divided on healthcare repeal

PRINCETON, N.J., Jan. 7 (UPI) -- Three-quarters of Republicans favor repeal of healthcare reform, while 64 percent of Democrats oppose repeal, a U.S. survey indicates.

A Gallup poll indicates 46 percent of U.S. adults say they want their representative in Congress to vote to repeal the Affordable Care Act, 40 percent say they want their representative to vote to let the law stand and 14 percent say they have no opinion.


The survey was conducted Jan. 4-5 as the new Congress elected in November began its work.

"Americans' broadly divided opinions on repealing the healthcare legislation are in line with Gallup polling from much of the past two years that showed the bill struggling to gain majority public support both before and shortly after its passage," Gallup officials say. "Polls conducted more recently have shown Americans generally more opposed to than in favor of the healthcare law."

The poll surveyed 1,025 U.S. adults living in all 50 states and the District of Columbia, who were selected using random-digit-dial sampling.

The survey has a margin of error of 4 percentage points.
