    No, that's not what the poll said at all.

    What it actually said was that amongst those who said they would repeal the law, 73% of that group said that repealing it was very important to them, and 73% said that they were planning to vote.

    The issue there?

    Only 34% of poll respondents said they would repeal it. 13% said they would leave the law intact as is, and 51% said they would retain it with "small changes".

    In fact, when you look at the actual Bloomberg poll release instead of a Business Insider article about it, the very first sentence is "President Barack Obama’s health-care law is becoming more entrenched, with 64 percent of Americans now supporting it outright or backing small changes."

    It has yet to really go into effect...the poll numbers will only go down.

    For all the complaining about the law, polling indicates support is currently going up. This Bloomberg poll had the highest level of people saying "keep as is" or "retain with small changes" of any poll that they have asked the question in.

    Approval of Obama's handling of the law is also going up, although since that particular number hit its low point in the December poll during the rollout, that makes sense.
