WASHINGTON — A new poll finds that most Americans approve of the recent Supreme Court decision preserving the health care law's subsidized insurance premiums for people in all 50 states.

Overall, 62 percent approved, while 32 percent disapproved, said the survey released Wednesday by the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation.

Opponents of the law had argued that a strict reading of President Barack Obama's law only allowed subsidies in states that set up their own insurance markets. The court disagreed, 6-3.

The poll found overwhelming approval for the decision among Democrats, and strong disapproval among Republicans. But independents mirrored the national results, approving by 61 percent to 34 percent.

The poll was conducted after last week's decision and has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3 percentage points for the full sample.
