A new poll from CNN/ORC International finds that 54 percent of Americans still oppose the Affordable Care Act, while 43 percent say they support it. But, according to the poll, a chunk of those who say they oppose the law think it didn't go far enough.

The survey indicates that 35% oppose the health care law because it's too liberal, with 16% saying they oppose the measure because it isn't liberal enough.

The wide partisan divide over the law remains. Nearly three quarters of Democrats say they favor the Affordable Care Act. That number drops to 16% among Republicans.
