Sen. Dean Heller's Hamlet-like uncertainty about Obamacare legislation is bombing with voters, with his approval rating at a dismal 22 percent, New York magazine reported.

"For months and months, Republican Nevada Sen. Dean Heller played Hamlet over legislation to partially repeal and replace Obamacare," writer Ed Kilgore wrote.

After voting against the Senate GOP's Better Care Reconciliation Act, and a "straight repeal" bill similar to one he had voted for in 2015, Heller gave Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., a yes vote on a motion to proceed that revived the whole effort, and stuck with his caucus on the "skinny repeal" vote that ended in defeat, the magazine noted.

A new Public Policy Polling survey now finds 55 percent of voters disapprove of Heller's job performance, with 23 percent unsure.

Only 31 percent of respondents say they would vote for him against a Democrat, who would receive 50 percent.

Heller is up for re-election next year.
