Moving beyond the like/dislike polls of Obamacare since 2010, in which the majority has always opted for "dislike," the latest poll by CBS and the New York Times posed three options: (1) like Obamacare as it is, (2) keep Obamacare but modify it, and (3) scrap it totally.

Only six percent of respondents chose option one to keep Obamacare pristine, 50 percent chose option two, and 42 percent favoried jettisoning the whole baby with the bath water.

In other queries, 53 percent favored offering citizenship to illegal immigrants; 56 percent favored legalization of same-sex marriages (but the majority of those believed it should be a state decision, not federal), and 51 percent favored the Colorado solution to marijuana.
