A growing number of Americans want Republicans to quit their efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare, and instead try for a bill that has bipartisan support, a new CNN/SSRS poll reveals.

In the poll, conducted between July 14-18 among a random national sample of 1,019 adults, 35 percent said they want President Donald Trump and congressional Republicans to give up their repeal/replace plans, up from 23 percent in a March survey.

Most favor some sort of repeal, but preferences are moving away from repealing the law and enacting replacements concurrently:

  • 34 percent would prefer repeal with replacement at the same time, down from 59 percent in March.
  • 18 percent favor repeal regardless of whether the law is replaced at the same time.
  • 13 percent are not sure what they want to happen.

The increases in abandoning repeal efforts are coming from groups that are not central to the GOP base, including younger adults, people with lower incomes, and non-whites, all who have become more supportive of leaving Obamacare alone.

About half of those polled said they think it's likely Trump and congressional Republicans will reach a repeal and replace measure, down from 58 percent in March, but above the 41 percent who think the Affordable Care Act will be repealed and replaced.

In other numbers:

  • 78 percent of Republicans say they are optimistic the repeal/replace measure will happen.
  • 77 percent say they want Republicans to work with Democrats for a bipartisan bill.
  • 12 percent favor continuing to try to pass a bill that only has GOP backing.
  • Further, only about 25 percent of Republicans favor a bill that has only the backing of their party's lawmakers.

The survey's' margin of error was plus or minus 3.7 percentage points.
