More Americans want to keep the Affordable Care Act as it is or expand it than want to get rid of it, according to a new poll released Friday.
The Kaiser Family Foundation found that 47 percent of Americans want to expand (22 percent) or keep the law (25 percent). Conversely, 37 percent said they wanted to either repeal the law and replace it with some Republican alternative (13 percent) or repeal it without replacing it (24 percent).
That’s despite the fact that more Americans have an unfavorable view of the law (44 percent) than a favorable view (38 percent), according to Kaiser.
The poll surveyed a nationally representative sample of 1,513 Americans ages 18 and over. It was conducted from Oct. 17 to 23.
