The American Health Care Act passed last week by House Republicans has just 38 percent support of voters, according to the latest Politico/Morning Consult poll.
- 38 percent approve, down 4 points from last week.
- 44 percent disapprove, up 7 points from last month.
- 18 percent say they don't know.
"These latest polling numbers on the American Health Care Act could spell trouble for Republicans," said Kyle Dropp, Morning Consult's chief research officer and co-founder.
"There is a notable enthusiasm gap: 29 percent strongly oppose the bill, but only 13 percent strongly support it. Moreover, we saw the number of Republican voters who strongly support the bill drop from 36 percent last week to 27 percent this week."
Regarding healthcare costs:
- 42 percent believe costs for their family would rise.
- 18 percent believe costs would decrease.
- 15 percent believe the bill would have no impact on costs.
Further, just 26 percent believe the AHCA would improve the healthcare system, and 25 percent believe the quality of care would improve, according to the poll.
The poll surveyed 1,996 registered voters and has a margin of error of plus or minus 2 percentage points.
