The Gallup organization released polling data on Monday describing where attitudes are with the health care law. According to Gallup, the country is relatively evenly divided if they favor (47%) or oppose (44%) a Republican president’s repealing the 2010 healthcare law. While 87 percent of Republicans favor repeal, 77 percent of Democrats oppose repealing it.
Gallup points out, “However, Republicans hold their views much more intensely than Democrats, with 56% of Republicans strongly favoring repeal and 39% of Democrats strongly opposing it.”
Most Americans also do not think the health care act is constitutional (72% to 20%). The Supreme Court will explore this constitutionality of the law’s individual mandate. In fact, while a good majority of Democrats support the legislation most Democrats (56% to 37%) believe the law’s individual mandate, which requires each American to have health insurance or pay a fine, is unconstitutional.
