Whether they approve of Obamacare or not, Americans want changes to President Obama’s signature achievement.
In a poll conducted after Donald Trump’s election, Gallup finds that more Americans disapprove of Obamacare than approve, and most want changes to President Obama’s signature legislative achievement.
According to Gallup, 53% of Americans disapprove of the law while only 42% approve. Only once has approval exceeded disapproval, in November 2012. In total, 37% of Americans want to repeal and replace Obamacare while 43% want to keep it but with major changes. As Gallup summarized:
Americans’ assessments of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) remain relatively unchanged after the Nov. 8 election, with more continuing to disapprove (53%) than approve (42%) of the law. Going forward, the vast majority of Americans want to see the law changed. This includes the 37% who want it repealed and replaced, along with a total of 43% of Americans who want the law kept, but with major changes.
The bottom line from Gallup:
Whatever the exact course of action that ensues once Trump and the new Congress take office, it is clear that about eight in 10 Americans favor changing the ACA significantly (43%) or replacing it altogether (37%).
