New Poll: The Supreme Court and the Health Care Law

Published: Friday, June 8 2012 10:44 a.m. MDT

According to a New York Times and CBS News poll, only 24 percent of Americans hope the Supreme Court will keep the 2010 health car law in place in its entirety.

Forty-one percent of those surveyed said the court should strike down the entire law, and another 27 percent said the justices should overturn only the individual mandate, which requires most Americans to obtain health insurance or pay a penalty.

There was greater Republican opposition to the law than Democratic support. About two-thirds of Republicans in the recent survey said the entire law should be overturned, while 43 percent of Democrats said all of the law should be upheld.

More than 70 percent of independent voters said they wanted to see some or all of the law struck down, with a majority saying they hoped to see the whole law overturned. Twenty-two percent of independents said they hoped the entire law would survive.

The Supreme Court is expected to decide a challenge to the law by the end of this month.
