A majority of voters want a complete repeal or major changes to Obamacare, according to a poll prepared for a GOP political group found.

The survey conducted for the American Action Network, a nonprofit aligned with House Republican leaders, also finds most voters do not agree the Democrats' slogan, "Make America Sick Again," will occur with repeal of the Affordable Care Act.

The Washington Examiner, which received a preview of the survey, reported the national survey showed:

  • 70 percent of respondents support repeal of Obamacare with a "modest transition period," during which people keep their coverage while they wait for a new law to be in place.
  • 32.1 percent – mostly Democrats – agreed a repeal would "make America sick again;" 64.8 percent of independents disagreed, as did 85.9 percent of Republicans.
  • 54.1 percent favor complete repeal or major changes to Obamacare, including 61.6 percent of independents and 17.6 percent of Democrats.
  • Voters would support repeal of Obamacare by a margin of 68.9 percent to 25.2 percent – if disruptions were avoided.
  • Voters overwhelmingly support retaining Obamacare's current prohibitions against refusing coverage for an existing medical condition, and allowing children under 26 to be covered by their parents' insurance.

The poll's margin of error was plus or minus 3.1 percentage points.
