Just over half of voters in four battleground states are in support of the Affordable Care Act, according to a poll released by Baldwin Wallace University.

The findings suggest that most voters are in favor of keeping the health care law as the future of the Affordable Care Act is brought into question with the nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court. She has argued against ObamaCare in the past as a law professor at Notre Dame University.

Fifty-five percent of respondents from Michigan supported the act, along with 55 percent from Ohio, 56 percent from Pennsylvania and 58 percent from Wisconsin.

The Great Lakes poll also revealed that Trump was trailing behind Biden in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin with numbers falling outside the margin or error. As notes, these four states voted for President Obama in 2012 and Donald Trump in 2016.

Since it was first signed into law in 2010, Republican lawmakers have made several unsuccessful attempts to repeal it. The case will be head before the Supreme Court on Nov. 10.

At the start of her confirmation hearings, Senate Democrats have sought to inextricably connect Barrett to Trump’s vows of repealing the ACA.

“The president has promised to appoint justices who will vote to dismantle that law. As a candidate he criticized the Supreme Court for upholding the law and said, ‘if I win the presidency, my judicial appointments will do the right thing, unlike Bush’s appointee John Roberts on ObamaCare,’” said Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) during her examination of Barrett.

The university, in partnership with Oakland University and Ohio Northern University, surveyed 4,166 people across Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin between Sept. 30 and Oct. 8.
