The majority of Americans want President Barack Obama's signature healthcare law repealed and replaced according to pollster Frank Luntz.

"The people do want Obamacare repealed but they want an alternative put in its place," Luntz told Fox News' "Fox & Friends" host Steve Doocy.

The overwhelming majority of Republicans, 96 percent, want the Affordable Care Act repealed. Most Democrats, 84 percent, say the same, as do swing voters by a 3-2 margin.

Conservative legislators are eager to "pull Obamacare up by the roots as if it never existed," Luntz told PBS in December. "They would say that Obama's plan has failed."

According to his latest poll, Americans want to see Obamacare repealed immediately, but can wait for its replacement.

"Half of Americans will wait a year to make sure that it's done step by step. They don't want any mistakes. They don't want it rushed," he said.

"They don't want it politicized. They want a personalized, human approach to health care and they expect Republicans to fix the mistakes in Obamacare. Make it more affordable, give people control and give people the choice of health care that they deserve. They have a year to do it."

According to Luntz, the voters supported Trump because they're uninterested in compromise, and therefore Republicans should stick to their campaign promises.

"My advice for the GOP? Stay the course. You know what you promised the American people during the election. You have to deliver it. Some within 100 days and some in the first year. Listen and learn with the voters and be their voice.

"If the Republican majority is the voice of the American people in Washington they will be returned to office."
