About 7 out of 10 voters are “concerned” about how the Affordable Care Act will affect their health care, according to a Fox News poll released Tuesday.

Of the 68 percent who are concerned about their health care, 43 percent are “very concerned” while 25 percent are “somewhat concerned.” Older Americans between 55 and 64 years old are the most likely to be worried about their health care under the Affordable Care Act, with 77 percent in that age group expressing concern.

More than half of those polled also said they wanted to go back to how health care was in 2009, before Obamacare. On the other hand, the majority of blacks, Democrats and liberals polled think it’s better to leave the new law in place — only about a third total of those polled.

The poll was conducted through landline and cell phone interviews with 900 randomly selected registered voters across the country over the first weekend of September.
