Obamacare repeal may have hurt vulnerable congressional Republicans facing reelection in 2018, a poll by Democratic-affiliated organizations said.

The poll was conducted by the liberal super PACs Priorities USA Action and Patriot Majority, Time magazine reported.

Voters in 15 swing districts presently held by Republican House members were surveyed, the magazine reported. And, according to Time, here is what the poll found:

  • 52 percent of voters who know that their representative supported the GOP's American Health Care Act said they would prefer to elect a Democrat next year.
  • 40 percent said they would prefer to re-elect their current representative.
  • 34 percent said they have a favorable opinion of the bill, while 65 percent are unfavorable.

A recent Quinnipiac University poll found just 21 percent of American voters approve the Republican healthcare bill passed by the House, while 56 percent disapprove.

Meanwhile, Time noted Priorities USA has already launched an ad blitz against lawmakers who voted for the bill and has already spent more than $100,000 on the advertising campaign.
