Default Poll: 57% disapprove of GOP health care bill

Only 20% support this new health care bill.

What an improvement from 17% last time around.

Washington (CNN)A new poll shows trouble for lawmakers who back the Republican plan to repeal and replace Obamacare.

A Quinnipiac University poll released Thursday found that a wide majority of voters -- 57% to 20% -- disapprove of the Republican health care bill. Those numbers are virtually identical to public sentiment both shortly after the bill passed the House in early May and back in March when an attempt to pass an earlier version failed.

The poll provides little comfort to anxious Republicans looking to 2018 and remembering Democrats' 2010 midterm losses after their successful attempt at health care reform. Just 17% of independent voters say they are more likely to vote for a member of Congress who supports the bill, while 41% say it would make them less likely to support that member.

Voters disapprove of President Donald Trump's handling of health care by large margin -- 62% to 32% -- and half of them think he should not support the repeal effort.

Outside of the health care fight, large majorities say they disapprove of the way Republicans (70%) and Democrats (63%) are doing their jobs. And leaders from both sides -- House Speaker Paul Ryan, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer -- all carry negative favorability ratings.

The poll also surveyed attitudes toward Trump and the media. By 53% to 34%, voters said they trust the media to tell the truth about issues more than Trump. That's a slight improvement for the President from a previous survey two weeks ago that had the spread 57% to 31%.

Additionally, 57% said they disapprove of the way the media covers Trump, and 62% said they disapprove of the way Trump talks about the media.
The Quinnipiac poll surveyed 1,404 voters across the country from May 17 through May 23. It has a margin of error of +/- 3 points.

It does seem reasonable to inquire: Is this post really meant to inform? Or is it just an attempt to gloat?

Moreover, ObamaCare is failing--it is my understanding that there is not a single ObamaCare insurer in all of Iowa now; and plenty of other states have just one--so its quick demise is certain.

The salient question then, is: What would you suggest in order to improve the GOP bill (in the House) that would replace ObamaCare?

(By the way, it seems fair to note that the Senate version of the bill--which has not yet been drafted--will have to be created; and then the two versions will have to go to committee, for compromise.)

Wally, those are old numbers as of today when I viewed this NBC Poll on the GOP, House Care Bill.... As it has less support.

It states; 3 to 1 are not happy with it.. And it has a chart which shows each over all position on the topic. Independent, Rep., Dem's., And all adults they polled.

NBC Poll: Public Overwhelmingly Disapproves of House Health Care Bill

By a 3-to-1 margin, the American public holds a negative view of the American Health Care Act, legislation that House Republicans passed last month and that President Donald Trump supports.

Just 16 percent of adults believe that House health care bill is a good idea, versus 48 percent who say it's a bad idea.
