The majority of voters do not want to see the Affordable Care Act be repealed, according to a new poll from Reuters/Ipsos released on Friday.

Most likely voters said that Congress should “keep the ACA and fix the problem parts,” far more than said that Congress should “pass [an] alternate law, then repeal the ACA,” repeal the ACA entirely, or keep it just as it is.

  • 52 percent said keep the ACA and fix its problems
  • 25 percent said pass a new law and then repeal the ACA
  • 17 percent said to repeal the ACA entirely
  • 5 percent said to keep the law as it is

The vast majority of likely voters also support prohibiting insurance providers from denying coverage based on pre-existing conditions.

  • 79 percent favor ban
  • 21 percent oppose ban

Although most voters rating America as having a “poor” healthcare system, they place more responsibility for the state of the system on insurance companies than former President Barack Obama, pharmaceutical companies, President Donald Trump, or members of Congress.

  • 52 percent said U.S. healthcare system is poor
  • 34 percent said it is average
  • 13 percent said it is good
  • 25 percent said insurers are responsible for the healthcare system
  • 23 percent said Obama
  • 14 percent said they don’t know
  • 11 percent said pharmaceutical companies
  • 11 percent said Trump
  • 7 percent said Congressional Republicans
  • 7 percent said Congressional Democrats

Reuters/Ipsos surveyed 925 likely voters from October 12 to 17, with a margin of error of +/- 3.7 percentage points.
