Poll: 35% of voters support House-approved AHCA

A new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll revealed a growing number of Americans do not favor the House-approved American Health Care Act, according to Politico.

The poll, conducted June 15-19, surveyed more than 2,000 registered voters.

Here are four poll findings reported by the publication.

1. The poll found 35 percent of respondents support the House-approved AHCA, while 49 percent oppose it. Sixteen percent of respondents "don't know or don't have an opinion," according to the report.

2. Based on past POLITICO/Morning Consult polling, 38 percent of voters supported the AHCA immediately after it passed the House in May, while 44 percent opposed it.

3. Along party lines, 30 percent of Republicans oppose the GOP healthcare bill compared to 53 percent of independent voters, the poll found. That's an increase from 15 percent of Republicans who opposed the bill early last month.

4. The poll also found 27 percent of respondents think the GOP healthcare bill will improve the U.S. healthcare system, compared to 41 percent who believe the opposite.
