Most Americans in favor of universal healthcare
Becker's Hospital Review

Approximately 58 percent of Americans are in favor of replacing the Affordable Care Act with a universal healthcare system, and some 37 percent are against that idea, according to a recent Gallup poll.

To obtain results, Gallup surveyed 1,549 adults over the age of 18 from May 6 to 8. Here are two other findings from the poll.

1. Fifty-one percent of Americans favor repealing the ACA, while 45 percent do not.
2. Approximately 48 percent of Americans favor keeping the ACA in place, and 49 percent oppose doing so.
