The latest Rasmussen poll of likely voters shows that Americans support the repeal of Obamacare by a margin of 17 percentage points — 56 to 39 percent.  The margin of support for repeal is slightly higher among independents — 18 points (57 to 39 percent).   Repeal is supported by a majority of both sexes and all six income groups surveyed.  This marks the 29th consecutive Rasmussen poll showing double-digit support for repeal. 


The poll shows that, by a margin of 39 points (53 to 14 percent), Americans think Obamacare would raise, rather than lower, the deficit.  By a margin of 25 points (47 to 22), they think it would reduce, rather than improve, the quality of American health care.  By a margin of 36 points (52 to 16 percent), they think it would raise, rather than lower, health costs. 

A new ABC News/Washington Post poll shows similarly strong opposition to President Obama’s centerpiece legislation.
