Though more than a quarter of people surveyed after the election want to see the Affordable Care Act repealed or sharply scaled back, 30% want to see the law expanded and 19% want the law to remain as is, according to a report released Thursday by the Kaiser Family Foundation.
And among those who want the law repealed, 38% changed their mind after hearing that repealing the ACA would allow insurers to deny coverage to people with pre-existing conditions.
Another 19% of those who wanted to see the law repealed changed their opinion after hearing that more than 20 million Americans could lose their coverage.
The poll captured a slight increase in the share of Americans who want changes in the law and a decrease in the number of people who want lawmakers to repeal the entire law.
About half of people who identify as Republicans say they want to see the ACA repealed, down from 69% in October. At the same time, 24% of Republicans now want to see the law scaled back, up from 11% in October.
Among the quarter of Americans who want to see the Affordable Care Act repealed, 31% want to see the healthcare law just repealed and not replaced.
About two-thirds of those surveyed supporting repeal want President-elect Donald Trump and the next Congress to repeal the healthcare law and replace it with a Republican-sponsored alternative.
