A new poll finds 77 percent of Americans support either delaying or repealing Obamacare's individual mandate. The extensive survey of 2,076 registered voters found that 28 percent say the individual mandate that Americans purchase health insurance coverage should be delayed, while 49 percent say the mandate should be repealed entirely. Among those who favor delay or repeal of the mandate are 91 percent of Republicans, 77 percent of independents, and 65 percent of Democrats.

The survey, conducted on behalf of the Morning Consult, also found that 50 percent of registered voters say they somewhat or strongly oppose the individual mandate. Asked what should be done about Obamacare, 33 percent say Congress should make changes to improve the law, 30 percent say it should be repealed, 21 percent said the law should go into effect, 12 percent say the law should be expanded, and just 4 percent say it should be defunded and delayed.
