(Newser) – With a Supreme Court ruling due by the end of June, two-thirds of Americans want at least a piece of ObamaCare overturned, a New York Times/CBS News poll finds. The results mark little change since before Supreme Court arguments in March. About 41% say the whole law should be dropped; 27% say just the individual health care mandate needs to go. Some 24% of respondents want the law kept as it is, the Times reports.

The survey finds a number of demographic differences in support for the law. While two-thirds of Republicans want the law gone, 43% of Democrats say we should keep the whole thing. Among independents, 70% want to be rid of at least part of the law, while 22% want to keep it all. About a third of college-educated respondents vote to keep the law; the figure is 20% among those without college degrees. Regardless, public opinion has little effect on justices, who "care more about the views of academics, journalists and other elites," say analysts.
