47 Percent Want to Repeal Health Care Reform

A slew of Republican candidates ran on it, and President Obama has said, predictably, that it's an utter non-starter. But 47 percent want to repeal the health care law that passed this spring, according to a nationwide survey from Quinnipiac University:

Given three choices on the new health care reform law:
•    30 percent of American voters say expand it;
•    18 percent say leave it as it is;
•    47 percent say repeal it.

Quinnipiac surveyed 2,424 respondents nationwide Nov. 8-15. The poll's margin of error is +/- two percentage points.
