Almost four in 10 called the law a failure and 45 percent said its flaws will never be fixed.
The survey also showed a majority of Americans (58 percent) are opposed to the Affordable Care Act — a continuation of a recent trend —but the pollsters provided context for the source of the opposition.
Forty-one percent said they oppose the law because it's too liberal, while 14 percent said it isn't liberal enough. As CNN noted, this means that 54 percent either support the Affordable Care Act or believe it isn't liberal enough.
The CNN/ORC poll was conducted Nov. 18-20 using live phone interviews with 843 American adults. It has a margin of error of 3.5 percentage points.
