Fifty-five percent of Americans have an unfavorable view of the Republicans' healthcare plan, compared to 31 percent who like it, a new poll from the Kaiser Family Foundation revealed.
Here are the survey highlights:
- Sixty-seven percent of Republicans like the GOP healthcare bill, known as the American Health Care Act, compared to 18 percent who do not.
- Eight percent of Democrats favor it, while 84 percent have an unfavorable view of it.
- Thirty percent of independents like it, compared to 57 percent who do not.
- Forty-nine percent of all those polled have a favorable view of the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, compared to 42 who do not.
"Partisanship is the main driver behind support for either the ACA or the AHCA," the Kaiser Family Foundation noted in its report accompanying the survey.
Here is how the rest of the poll breaks down:
- Fourteen percent say the GOP healthcare plan addresses all or most of President Donald Trump's healthcare promises, compared to 76 percent who say it deals with some or none of his pledges.
- Seventy-three percent say it is either very likely or somewhat likely Congress will repeal and replace Obamacare, compared to 24 percent who disagree.
The poll was conducted May 16-22 using a nationally representative random telephone sample of 1,205 adults. The margin of error is plus or minus 3 percentage points for the full sample.
