Poll: Support for AHCA dips to 38% after passage in the House

More American voters approve of the Affordable Care Act now than they ever did under the previous administration, which enacted the law — even as support is slipping for the GOP alternative that Republicans are now shepherding through Congress.

A new Morning Consult/POLITICO poll shows that 50 percent of voters strongly or somewhat approve of Obamacare, while 42 percent disapprove of the 2010 health law. On the other hand, 38 percent of voters say they approve of the American Health Care Act, versus 44 percent who disapprove of the GOP measure meant to replace the ACA…

Support for the legislation splits along party lines, with two-thirds of Republicans saying they approve of the AHCA, compared to 19 percent of Democrats. (In contrast, 82 percent of Democrats approve of Obamacare, versus 21 percent of Republicans who do so.)
