On the eve of the New Hampshire Republican primary, Rasmussen’s nationwide polling of likely voters shows that Americans want Congress and the President to repeal Obamacare. By a margin of 15 percentage points (54 to 39 percent), Americans want repeal.  By a margin of 17 points (51 to 34 percent), they think Obamacare would be bad, rather than good, for the country.  Also by a margin of 17 points (43 to 26 percent), they think repealing Obamacare would help, rather than hurt, the economy.  And by a margin of 21 points (52 to 31 percent), they think Obamacare likely will be repealed.


However, it won’t be repealed so long as Obama is in the White House.
