Latest Poll: 67% of Public Want Obamacare Delayed Until Fixed, 53% Want Repeal

"Americans remain unhappy with the health care law: Majorities say they wish it had never passed, would vote to repeal it if they could, and think implementation should be delayed until the kinks are worked out. At the same time, a shrinking majority believes the law will survive.

That’s according to a year-end Fox News poll released Wednesday.

The number of voters who want implementation of the law delayed continues to grow. The new poll shows 67 percent think it should be postponed a year “until more details are ironed out.” That’s up four percentage points since last month -- and up 10 points since October.

Those favoring a delay also now include a majority of Democrats: 54 percent support delaying implementation. That’s up 10 points from 44 percent last month.

Overall, by a 54-38 percent margin, people wish the health care law had never passed and the 2009 system were still in place.

Similarly, 53 percent would vote to repeal the law if given the chance, while 41 percent would keep it.

Republicans (86 percent repeal) are 14 points more likely to want the health care law repealed than Democrats are to want to keep it (72 percent keep).

About one Democrat in five would vote to repeal the law (22 percent).

Sixty-one percent of voters believe the Obama administration knew ahead of time that not everyone would be able to keep their doctor. What’s more, almost everyone says it’s important to them to be able to choose their doctor (82 percent “very” and 13 percent “somewhat” important)." -  Fox News Poll: 67 percent say delay Obamacare, 53 percent would vote to repeal it,, 12/18/2013
