Most California voters do not want Congress to halt funding for the Affordable Care Act, according to a Field Research Corporation poll released Tuesday.

Californians have generally supported what is popularly known as Obamacare since the measure was under consideration for vote.

"Most California voters remain steadfast in their support of the Affordable Care Act," according to the pollster. "The results of the survey find 53 percent of voters supporting the law and 38 percent opposed. These findings are very similar to each of three prior surveys conducted since the law’s passage."

Californians are divided over the health law by partisan affiliations and ideological agendas.

Democrats and liberals support it, according to the poll, while Republicans and conservatives oppose it.

"Californians’ views about actions the U.S. Congress should take on the law largely mirror their overall opinions of the law," according to the survey, "with 51 percent in support of keeping it as is or expanding it further and 38 percent in favor of repealing all or part of it. Almost twice as many Californians have greater trust in state government than the federal government to implement the law."
