Slightly more Americans favor repealing last year's health care reform legislation than favor keeping it in place, according to a Gallup poll released Wednesday.

Forty-seven percent of Americans support repealing the law while 42 percent want to keep it in place, Gallup found. The gap remains partisan: 80 percent of self-described Republicans, 21 percent of Democrats and 48 percent of independents favor repeal. Meanwhile, 10 percent of Republicans, 64 percent of Democrats and 43 percent of independents say the law should stay.

Gallup also found that those who take a stand on repeal feel strongly about their choice. Sixty percent of those who support the law say it’s very important that it stay in place, while 66 percent of those favoring repeal say it's very important to scrap the law.

 

Results were based on telephone interviews conducted Nov. 3-6, with a random sample of 1,012 adults nationwide.
