Poll: 75% of Americans say Trump should try to make the ACA work

A vast majority of Americans believe President Donald Trump and his administration should try to make the ACA work, according to the latest Kaiser Health Tracking Poll.

While 75 percent of Americans think the new administration should make the current law work, 19 percent think President Trump and his administration should try to make the law fail so they can replace it in the future.

Along party lines, 89 percent of Democrats, 78 percent of independents and 51 percent of Republicans said President Trump and his administration should try to make the ACA work, according to the poll. However, groups of Republicans were divided. The poll found 60 percent of moderate and liberal Republicans believe President Trump and his administration should try to make the law work, while 45 percent of conservative Republicans believe the same.

Additionally, the poll found more then half of Americans (54 percent) who approve of President Trump believe President Trump and his administration should try to make the ACA work, while  37 percent said they should try to make the law fail. Ninety percent of Americans who disapprove of Trump believe the president's administration should try to make the ACA work.

Roughly 1,200 Americans participated in the survey, which took place March 28- April 3, 2017.
