A substantial majority of Americans believe Obamacare should remain law, either exactly as it is or with small changes, according to a new poll.

Bloomberg News found that a combined 64 percent of Americans said they support keeping the law in place. That includes 51 percent who said it should be kept but may need some small changes and 13 percent who said it should be left alone. Only 34 percent said it should be repealed.

Obamacare is also likely to weigh on people’s minds when they vote this November: 52 percent said the law would be a major factor in their decision, and 20 percent said it would be a minor factor.

The Bloomberg poll didn’t ask how it would affect people’s votes. An NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll found that the law was currently a wash between the two parties for the 2014 elections.

Bloomberg News surveyed 1,001 U.S. adults from March 7 to 10. The poll’s margin of error is 3.1 percentage points.
