Most Americans are ready for a change in U.S. healthcare.

"The vast majority of Americans want to see the law changed," a recent Gallup poll found. "This includes the 37 percent who want it repealed and replaced, along with a total of 43 percent of Americans who want the law kept, but with major changes."

President-elect Donald Trump said he would repeal and replace Obamacare once in office.

More recently, though, he said he would keep at least two parts of the Affordable Care Act intact including the provision which prohibits health insurers from denying coverage to people with pre-existing health conditions and the exception allowing people to stay on their parents' insurance until they are 26.

Disapproval of Obamacare, implemented in 2010, has been common since Gallup started tracking responses four years ago. Fifty-three percent of adults polled from Nov. 9-13 said they disapproved of Obamacare, while 42 percent said they approved. Of the adults who approve of the ACA, 66 percent want changes, while 70 percent of those who disapprove say they want the law to be repealed and replaced.

Gallup interviewed 1,109 adults, and the poll has a margin of sampling error of +/-4 percentage points.
