Only 18 percent of voters think Congress and President-elect Donald Trump should fully repeal ObamaCare, a new poll released Thursday finds. 

Another 47 percent said only some of ObamaCare should be repealed, while 31 percent said it should be left untouched. 

The responses about whether Trump should support a repeal largely fall along party lines. 

Eighty-six percent of Republican voters said Trump should support the repeal, while 78 percent of Democrats said he should not.

Congressional Republicans are looking to repeal ObamaCare through budget reconciliation, a special maneuver that only requires 50 votes to pass in the Senate and prevents Democrats from filibustering. 

The Senate took its first steps Thursday toward repealing ObamaCare by passing a budget resolution that is being used as a vehicle for rolling back the law. The House will vote on the resolution Friday.

Trump said earlier this week that his administration would put forward a plan that repeal and replace the law “simultaneously.” 

Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said this week congressional Republicans also wanted to repeal and replace the law at the same time, though no replacement has been proposed yet. 

Democrats argue that repealing the bill without a replacement will throw millions off of their health insurance and send the markets into turmoil.
