Nearly two out of three Americans polled are in favor of repealing the health-care bill that Congress passed in March according to a recent Rasmussen Report.
Down three points from last week, this is the second straight week the polling company has found support at or above 60 percent for a repeal of the bill that will reform the national health care system
Rasmussen asked likely voters: “A proposal has been made to repeal the health care bill and stop it from going into effect. Do you strongly favor, somewhat favor, somewhat oppose or strongly oppose a proposal to repeal the health care bill?”
Forty-five (45) percent of Americans strongly favor the proposed repeal and 15 percent somewhat favor it — while 27 percent strongly oppose a repeal and 9 percent somewhat oppose it.
Robert Moffitt, director for the Center for Health Policy Studies at The Heritage Foundation in Washington, D.C., told CNSNews.com that he doesn’t find the poll result surprising.
