The latest ABC News/Washington Post poll reveals that voters are split when it comes to one of presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney's key campaign pledges.
Among registered voters nationwide, the poll shows that 41 percent have a favorable impression of Romney's vow to repeal the health care reform law — colloquially referred to as "Obamacare" — that was passed and signed into law in 2010, while 42 percent have an unfavorable view of the proposal. But the former Massachusetts governor's plan is unpopular among independents, with 47 percent saying they view Romney's call for repeal unfavorably and only 33 percent saying they have a favorable view.
The results are somewhat surprising given that polls routinely show clear majorities favor repeal of the new health care law. The TPM Poll Average currently shows strong support for repeal.
