Super Tuesday coincides with the 28th consecutive Rasmussen poll showing double-digit support for the repeal of Obamacare. By a margin of 11 percentage points (53 to 42 percent), the poll shows that likely voters from across the political spectrum favor repealing President Obama’s signature legislation. Support for repeal is even greater among independents, who favor it by 18 points (55 to 37 percent). Independents who feel “strongly” (either way) favor repeal by 24 points and by a tally of better than two to one (44 to 20 percent). 


A recent USA Today/Gallup poll of swing-state voters and a recent Quinnipiac poll of voters from coast-to-coast both show respondents favoring Obamacare’s repeal by a margin of 13 points.

Perhaps the Republican party, and particularly the eventual Republican presidential nominee, should run on repeal.
