Rasmussen Reports’ latest polling of likely voters shows that, by a 10-point margin, Americans favor the repeal of Obamacare. The poll shows that 52 percent of likely voters support the repeal of President Obama’s centerpiece legislation, while only 42 percent oppose it.  Repeal is popular among men (who favor it by a tally of 56 to 39 percent) and women (who favor it by a tally of 50 to 45 percent) alike.

This marks the 115th consecutive Rasmussen poll (out of 115 taken) showing that Americans favor repealing, rather than keeping, Obamacare.  In 108 of those polls, repeal has won by double-digits.  In all 115, it has won by at least 5 percentage points.

Obama and his party defiantly passed Obamacare (without a single Republican vote in either the House or Senate) against the clear will of the American people.  But as James Madison put it in Federalist 63, “[T]he cool and deliberate sense of the community ought, in all governments, and actually will, in all free governments, ultimately prevail over the views of its rulers.”  In the spirit of Madison’s words, the ultimate day of reckoning for Obamacare —and its architect — will be two weeks from tomorrow.
