For the 54th-straight week, Americans support the repeal of Obamacare—and for the 25th-straight week, they support it by double-digits, according to Rasmussen’s poll of likely voters. This week’s Rasmussen survey shows that Americans favor repeal by the whopping margin of 22 percentage points: 58 to 36 percent. Even one in three Democrats favors repeal (33 percent) — while only 12 percent of Republicans oppose it — with one in five Democrats “strongly” favoring repeal (20 percent).

Repeal Obamacare

Independents favor repeal by the tally of 55 to 36 percent, and more than twice as many independents “strongly favor” repeal (47 percent) as “strongly oppose” it (20 percent). Seniors favor repeal by a margin of 29 points (61 to 32 percent) and by a margin of better than two-to-one (48 to 20 percent) among those who feel “strongly.” Women favor repeal by 20 points (58 to 38 percent), and men favor it by 26 points: 59 to 33 percent. Even among those who don’t have health insurance, just as many people “strongly favor” repeal (32 percent) as “strongly oppose” it (32 percent).
