A majority of registered voters are opposed to a complete repeal of Obamacare, saying either they want it left alone, or altered to do "more," according to a new poll.

In the McClatchy/Marist survey released Monday, 20 percent said the healthcare law should stand as is, 38 percent want it changed "so it does more," and 7 percent want it altered so it "does less."

The survey found 31 percent want a complete repeal.

In other findings:

  • 71 percent want the Obamacare provision preventing insurance companies from denying coverage to those with preexisting conditions to remain in the law; 27 percent want it scrapped.
  • 78 percent back a rule letting children stay on their parents' healthcare plans until age 26, while 19 percent oppose that rule.
  • 71 percent want federal subsidies helping lower income people pay for health insurance to remain in law; 24 percent believe the entitlement should be repealed instead.
  • 45 percent think a mandate requiring Americans to purchase health insurance should remain legally required; 50 percent want it eliminated.

The poll's margin of error is plus or minus 3.3 percentage points.
