Poll: Voters still back health-law repeal

Most voters support the repeal of President Obama's healthcare reform law, according to a new poll.

Fifty-five percent of voters surveyed by the conservative-leaning Rasmussen expressed support for repeal, the firm reported. Thirty-nine percent, meanwhile, want to keep the law in place.

Controversy still surrounds the Affordable Care Act, which the Supreme Court largely upheld on June 28.


Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has made "repeal" a cornerstone of his campaign, and roughly half of House GOP recently urged their leaders to continue pushing against the law.

"We urge you not to bring to the House floor ... any legislation that provides or allows fund to implement ObamaCare," the members wrote in a letter, emphasizing that all funds for the law's implementation should be rescinded.

In all, the House has held more than 30 votes to undermine the healthcare law, including a second full-repeal vote on July 11 that succeeded 244-185. None of the efforts will see traction in the Democrat-led Senate.

According to Rasmussen, 41 percent of voters strongly favor repealing the law while 30 percent strongly oppose repeal.

The survey was conducted between July 27-28, one month after the Supreme Court issued its decision, and has a 3-point margin of error.
