GIVEN SUPPORT FROM 40% OF REPUBLICANS IT WON'T BE REPEALED:

Poll shows most Americans favor Medicaid expansion (David Morgan, Jul 31, 2012, Reuters) 

In a survey released on Tuesday by the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation, 67 percent of respondents gave a favorable view of President Barack Obama's healthcare reform provision to "expand the existing Medicaid program to cover more lowÔÇÉincome, uninsured adults."

Support for the idea, which would expand coverage to as many as 16 million uninsured Americans, broke sharply along partisan lines. Nearly nine out of 10 survey participants who said they were Democrats and two-thirds of independents backed the expansion. Six out of 10 Republican participants said they opposed it.

Half the folks in polls who think Obamacare should be repealed believe it should be replaced by a more nationalized system.
