Nearly seven in 10 Americans hope the Supreme Court will decide against all or part of President Obama's healthcare reform law, according to a new poll.
The finding comes as the country braces for the court's decision. A ruling is expected by the end of June.
Twenty-four percent want the Supreme Court to uphold the entire law.
Just over two-thirds of Republicans (67 percent) want the entire law struck down, according to the poll — more than the number of Democrats who want it upheld, just four in 10.
Among unaffiliated voters, a plurality (42 percent) want the entire law overturned, while a slightly smaller share (30 percent) said they wanted mandate struck down but the rest of the law to stand.
About one in five political independents want the law upheld.
According to CBS, 70 percent of Tea Party supporters wanted the entire law thrown out.
The poll has a margin of error of 3 percentage points.
