PPP's newest national poll finds that there is very little support for the American Health Care Act. Only 24% of voters support it, to 49% who are opposed. Even among Republican voters only 37% are in favor of the proposal to 22% who are against it, and 41% who aren't sure one way or another. Democrats (15/71) and independents (22/49) are more unified in their opposition to the bill than Republicans are in favor of it.The same poll also found: "Overall Trump has a 43% approval rating, with 50% of voters disapproving of him." He must be tired of all this winning. No wonder he has to convalesce at Mar-a-Lago every weekend.
The Affordable Care Act continues to post some of the best numbers it's ever seen, with 47% of voters in favor of it to 39% who are opposed. When voters are asked whether they'd have rather have the Affordable Care Act or the American Health Care Act in place, the Affordable Care Act wins by 20 points at 49/29. Just 32% of voters think the best path forward with the Affordable Care Act is to repeal it and start over, while 63% think it would be better to keep what works in it and fix what doesn't.

24: The percentage of respondents in a new PPP poll who support the GOP healthcare plan. Which, not coincidentally, is approximately the same percentage of people who will support Republicans no matter what fetid pile of slop they propose on any issue.
