Polling organizations are starting to ask Americans what they now want policymakers in Washington to do about the Affordable Care Act.
The Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation says, in a new report, that just 20 percent of the U.S. adults polled last month supported the idea of repealing the ACA immediately and coming up with an ACA replacement later.
About 47 percent of the survey participants said they want Congress to keep the law in place, and 28 percent said they want Congress to repeal the ACA and pass a replacement at the same time.
The Kaiser Foundation, a Menlo Park, California-based organization, based those figures on results from a national survey of 1,204 U.S. residents ages 18 and older conducted from Dec. 13 through Dec. 19.
Fox News came up with comparable results last month, when it had a polling firm ask about ACA repeal when it commissioned a national survey of its own. The polling firm, Anderson Robbins Research, surveyed 1,034 U.S. registered voters from Dec. 11 through Dec. 13.
What Fox News reported
Forty-nine percent of the participants in the Fox News poll said they want Congress to repeal the ACA.
