One week after a federal district judge ruled in favor of 26 states and declared Obamacare to be unconstitutional, Rasmussen's poll of likely voters shows that Americans support its repeal by a margin of 21 percentage points (58 to 37 percent). Among independents, the margin in support of repeal is even higher: 27 points (63 to 36 percent).

New Rasmussen Poll on Obamacare

By a margin of 40 points (58 to 18 percent), voters think Obamacare would increase, rather than reduce, deficits. By a margin of 31 points (52 to 21 percent), they think it would reduce, not improve, the quality of care. And by a margin of 36 points (56 to 20 percent), they think it would raise, rather than lower, health costs. Among independents, these margins are even greater:  68 to 13 percent on deficits, 60 to 16 percent on quality, and 63 to 16 percent on costs.

It's time for a replacement.
