Voters in the United States do not support the American Health Care Act by a 3 to 1 margin, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released Thursday.

The results:

  • Disapprove: 56 percent.
  • Approve: 17 percent.
  • Undecided: 26 percent.

Even among Republicans, the support is low at 41 percent.

Whether an official votes for the AHCA, almost half the voters said it would play a part in their decision-making at the next election.

  • Less likely to vote for an AHCA supporter: 46 percent.
  • More likely: 19 percent.
  • No effect on vote: 29 percent.
  • An equal amount of male and female voters are against the plan: 56 percent.

Democrats and independents also show little support for the AHCA in the poll:

  • Democrats who disapprove: 80 percent.
  • Independents who disapprove: 58 percent.

Fourteen percent — one out of every seven — voters who took the poll believe the AHCA will cause them to lose their health insurance plan.

Making health insurance affordable is important to most Americans.

  • Very important: 85 percent.
  • Somewhat important: 13 percent.

"Replacing Obamacare will come with a price for elected representatives who vote to scrap it, say many Americans, who clearly feel their health is in peril under the Republican alternative," said Tim Malloy, the poll's assistant director.

The poll was conducted between March 16-21 of 1,056 voters around the U.S., with a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percent.
