Poll: 'The partisan divide over the health care law is stark'

Americans are divided over whether Obamacare should survive.

A new United Technologies/National Journal Congressional Connection poll found 49 percent thought Congress should not end the program. Those people liked the expanded health insurance protection.

But 44 percent thought the law should be repealed because it's too expensive.

The findings in many ways reflect what's going on at the Capitol -- Republicans want to defund Obamacare. Democrats don't.

"The partisan divide over the health care law is stark," says a poll analysis. "More than three in four Republicans, 77 percent, said the program should be repealed. Meanwhile, 72 percent of Democrats said it should remain in place. Independents are closely divided: 46 percent favor repeal and 45 percent oppose."
