Associated Press

THE NEWS: Americans overwhelmingly want the president and Congress to get to work on a new bill to change the health care system if the Supreme Court strikes down President Barack Obama's 2010 overhaul as unconstitutional, a new poll finds.

THE NUMBERS: More than three-fourths of Americans do not want their political leaders to leave the health care system alone in the event the court throws out the health care law, an Associated Press-GfK poll shows.

THE DETAILS: The call for new legislation comes even as just a third of Americans support the landmark health care law, a level that is relatively unchanged in recent months.
