CBS/NYT Poll: Most want Supreme Court to overturn individual health care mandate

Poll: Most want Supreme Court to overturn individual health care mandate

By Leigh Ann Caldwell  CBS  June 7, 2012

 

CBS News Poll analysis by the CBS News Polling Unit: Sarah Dutton, Jennifer De Pinto, Fred Backus and Anthony Salvanto.

 

A new CBS News/New York Times poll reveals that nearly seven in ten Americans want the Supreme Court to overturn either all or President Obama’s health care law or strike down just the individual mandate.

 

In the poll released on Thursday, 41 percent of those polled think Mr. Obama’s health care law should be overturned completely by the Supreme Court, with another 27 percent of respondents saying they want the court to keep the law but overturn the mandate.

 

Nearly one-quarter – twenty-four percent – of respondents want the entire law upheld. The margin of error is three percentage points.

 

As the Supreme Court decision on the health care law is expected this month, the new poll shows that Republicans are much more likely to want the entire law overturned than Democrats, with 67 percent wanting the law to be overturned compared to 20 percent of Democrats. While 42 percent of Democrats say they want the entire law to be upheld, 42 percent of Independent respondents say they want the Supreme Court to overturn the whole law.
