The majority of voters do not want Obamacare repealed, by a large margin:
The Republican position on health care — led by Mitt Romney and embraced by nearly all the members of the party leadership — is to repeal the entire health care law passed by President Obama and the Democrats.Emphasis mine.
But that is not the opinion of the majority of voters, according to preliminary exit poll results. The survey shows that just a quarter of the people who voted in the election want to repeal all of Mr. Obama’s law.
About the same amount want to repeal only some of the law. And the rest want to leave the law as it is or expand it.
Republicans have argued for years that the health care law would be an albatross around Mr. Obama’s neck as he seeks re-election. They said the law’s broad scope would be seen by voters as job-killing regulations.
But the exit poll results back up claims by Democrats that some provisions in the law are very popular, and that voters would react negatively to the Republican push to repeal it.
So 75% want all or at least some of it to remain. Ultimately unsurprising, but still heartening.
As someone who is uninsurable (too much to go into, but basically of good health with some unfortunate diagnoses in my past), I am really glad to see this.
