The latest Rasmussen poll of likely voters shows that, by a margin of 11 percentage points (52 to 41 percent), Americans favor the repeal of Obamacare. This marks the 25th consecutive time across the past 8 months that Rasmussen’s polling has shown double-digit support for repeal.


Perhaps the Republican presidential candidates will have more to say about the importance of repeal in tonight’s GOP presidential debate.  In the last debate, Newt Gingrich, who lists repealing Obamacare as his first legislative priority, said, “Why is President Obama for young people being allowed to stay on their parents’ insurance until 26? Because he can’t get any jobs for them to go out and buy their own insurance.” Moments later, Rick Santorum conveyed that he understands “the most important issue that this country is dealing with right now” is “the robbing of our freedom because of Obamacare.”
