Even though the Supreme Court upheld the individual insurance requirement at the heart of Obamacare, 54 percent wanted to see the law repealed, according to a Rasmussen poll.

A week after President Barack Obama’s health care law was passed, 54 percent of voters nationwide wanted to see the law repealed. But that has changed, the poll said, as 54 percent wanted to see it repealed.

Most Democrats oppose repeal, while most Republicans support it, according to Rasmussen. Older voters, who use the health care system more than anyone else, favor repeal more than younger voters.

Most voters, according to Rasmussen, have consistently said that the law will hurt the quality of care, drive up costs and increase the federal deficit. Most voters also don’t like the government ordering people to buy health insurance and don’t think the Constitution permits that anyway.
