Shock Poll: GOP Health Care Repeal Less Popular Than Ever
June 9, 2017
“Republicans are risking their careers by voting for a bill that fewer than 2 in 10 Americans support. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that when you raise people’s premiums, take people’s health care away, and impose an Age Tax on seniors to satisfy the special interests and give billionaire Donald Trump and millionaire Paul Ryan a massive tax cut, it’s going to be unpopular.” – DNC Chair Tom Perez
From yesterday’s Quinnipiac Poll:
American voters disapprove 62 – 17 percent of the Republican health care plan, compared to a 57 – 20 percent disapproval in a May 25 Quinnipiac University poll. Today, Republicans approve of the health care plan 42 – 25 percent, as every other listed party, gender, education, age or racial group disapproves by wide margins.
Voters oppose 65 – 30 percent decreasing federal funding for Medicaid. Republicans support a Medicaid cut 49 – 39 percent, while every other listed group opposes the cut by wide margins.
Voters disapprove 66 – 28 percent of the way Trump is handling health care.
