Democrats' bus tour targets GOP over health care

Democrats' bus tour targets GOP over health care

However, when you separate out by political affiliation, you not only find that Obamacare is wildly popular among Democrats, but also that those Democrats would gladly pay more in taxes if that meant full, government-run health care.

Around 4 in 5 want the Trump administration to take actions that help Obama's law function properly, rather than trying to undermine it. Trump has suggested steps like halting subsidies to insurers who reduce out-of-pockets health costs for millions of consumers.

The poll, from the Kaiser Family Foundation, found that moving forward, 60 percent of the public believes that "Trump and Republicans in Congress are responsible for any problems with the ACA". But to do it involved taxing wealthy households, pharmaceutical companies, and medical device manufacturers while extending tax credits to low-income earners - in other words, the kind of stuff Republicans abhor.

And by almost 2-to-1, most say it's good that the Senate rejected the GOP repeal-and-replace bill last month. Lastly, he knows that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has neither the fortitude nor the support to repeal the Affordable Care Act and, perhaps, lacks any real desire to do so. Half favor the law vs. 46% who oppose it.

Only 17 percent of the public — and 40 percent of Republicans — think the Trump administration should take steps to make the health law fail, the survey said. Many Republican voters have been wondering why the party has, thus far, failed to make good on its years-old promise to repeal Obamacare - a promise that has brought them victory in recent midterm elections, in addition to the general election of 2016.

Of course, pollsters are quick to caution that the generic ballot could change before the election, that gerrymandering makes Democrats' obstacles steep, and that President Donald Trump might pull his approval numbers out of their current tailspin. And equal shares of respondents (21%) said they want the GOP to continue working on its own replacement bill or to abandon their efforts altogether. While around 6 in 10 overall say Trump should not use such disruptive tactics, a majority of Republicans back that approach. Trump has said the public will blame Democrats for any problems. There has been a 9-percentage-point increase in people who hold a favorable view since November.

Kaiser contacted 1,211 adults for this survey from August 1 to 6 via landline and cellphone calls.

The survey was conducted between August 1 and 6 and has a margin of error of plus or minus three percentage points.
