Nearly 7 out of 10 Americans — including 43 percent of Republicans — say it's more important for President Donald Trump's administration to stabilize Obamacare rather than repeal it, according to the Kaiser Health tracking poll.

The poll was taken before Trump used an executive order Thursday that will lead to a rewrite of federal insurance rules surrounding Obamacare.

The results, according to the Kaiser survey:

  • 66 percent say it's more important to stabilize the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
  • 29 percent say it's more important to repeal and replace the ACA.
  • 67 percent of independents say stabilize the ACA.
  • 51 percent of Republicans say it's more important to repeal the ACA.
  • 51 percent hold a favorable view of the ACA, up 5 points since September.

Further, 71 percent of those surveyed want the Trump administration to do what it can to make Obamacare work, while 21 percent want it to make the law fail in order to replace it later, according to Kaiser.

Nearly half of Republicans — 48 percent — want Trump to make Obamacare work, while 43 percent of Republicans want Trump to make the ACA fail, according to Kaiser.

Overall, 40 percent believe that Trump's actions are hurting Obamacare compared to 19 percent who believe his actions are helping the ACA.

Among Republicans, 43 percent believe his actions are helping Obamacare; 37 percent say his actions are having no impact; 12 percent say his actions are hurting the ACA.

This Kaiser survey was conducted Oct. 5-10 among a nationally representative random digit dial telephone sample of 1,215 adults 18 and older, living in the United States, including Alaska and Hawaii. The margin of sampling error including the design effect for the full sample is +/- 3 percentage points.
