Most Americans want critics of Obamacare move on to other issues, a new poll shows, while a majority of Republicans want to see efforts to block it continue.
The survey by the Kaiser Family Foundation showed that 56 percent of Americans want opponents to move on now that the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled it constitutional.
“Democrats overwhelmingly say opponents should move on to other issues – 82 percent – as do 51 percent of independents and 26 percent of Republicans,” according to Kaiser.
However, the foundation says, “seven in 10 Republicans – 69 percent – say they want to see efforts to stop the law continue, a view shared by 41 percent of independents and 14 percent of Democrats.”
The public also remains divided over last week’s Supreme Court’s decision, the Kaiser survey says: 47 percent support the justices’ decision, 43 percent do not and 10 percent remain unsure.
Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney and other GOP candidates are making the repeal of the Affordable Care Act central to their fall campaigns.
