New poll says majority of Americans want lawmakers to move on from healthcare

Only 29 percent of Americans want Congress to continue working on healthcare reform after Senate efforts to pass an ACA repeal were voted down last week, according to a new Reuters/Ipsos poll.

Sixty-four percent of those surveyed said they want to either keep the ACA or work on fixing its problem areas, up from 54 percent in January. Instead of healthcare, 71 percent of those surveyed chose policy areas such as foreign affairs and tax reform as priorities congress should focus on.

The poll was conducted online between July 28 and 29 and surveyed 1,136 people, including 381 Republicans and 475 Democrats.
