STATE SURVEYS FIND LITTLE SUPPORT FOR GOP HEALTH BILL

STATE SURVEYS FIND LITTLE SUPPORT FOR GOP HEALTH BILL ― The House GOP bill to repeal President Obama’s Affordable Care Act is deeply unpopular in a number of battleground states, according to a set of new surveys released by the American Medical Association, which opposes the proposal. Fewer than 26 percent of voters in AlaskaArkansasColorado, NevadaOhioTennesseeand West Virginia think the House bill, known as the American Health Care Act, is a good idea, according to the polls. The West Virginia survey was conducted by the Republican firm Voter/Consumer Research, and polling in the remaining states was conducted by the Republican firm Public Opinion Strategies.

While issue polling sponsored by an interested party should always be taken with a grain of salt, the results echo previous research modeling statewide support for the bill, which suggested that support for the GOP legislation fell below 40 percent in every state.
