A new Quinnipiac poll released today shows that, by a wide (and widening) margin, Americans want Obamacare to be repealed.  By a margin of 13 percentage points (52 to 39 percent), Americans support the repeal of President Obama’s centerpiece legislation.  That represents a swing of 8 points, against Obamacare, since a little over a year ago, at which time Quinnipiac showed that Americans supported repeal by a margin of 5 points (48 to 43 percent).


The current poll shows that Democrats oppose repeal.  It shows that Republicans, independents, college grads, non-college grads, those between 18 and 49 years of age, those between 50 and 64 years of age, those at least 65 years of age, those making under $30,000, those making between $30,000 and $50,000, those making between $50,000 and $100,000, and those making over $100,000, all support repeal.
