Six out of 10 Americans say that Senate Republicans' failure to repeal the law was a "good thing", compared to just 35 percent who disapproved and wanted the law repealed. "Moving forward, a majority of the public (60 percent) says President Trump and Republicans in Congress are responsible for any problems with the ACA". In particular, respondents indicated they disagreed with stopping outreach for ACA signups (80 percent) and with dropping enforcement of the individual mandate (65 percent).

Most (57%) say Republicans in Congress should work with Democrats to make improvements to the 2010 health law.

President Donald Trump showed no interest Friday in backing off his feud with Senate Republicans, even as some in his own party warned he could be undermining his agenda on Capitol Hill. He understands how important health care, how important taxes are to the people in this country.

Paul voted against McConnell's plan to repeal and replace Obamacare - saying it was a bailout for insurance companies - but voted for a bill that would repeal the law and let congressional Republicans hash out a replacement plan in a conference committee. Three in 10 (31%) support President Trump using whatever tactics are necessary to encourage Democrats to start negotiating. They also found that most Americans - 78 percent - believe Trump should do what he can to make Obamacare continue to work for millions of people. However, most Republicans (61%) and Trump supporters (63%) see continuing plans to repeal and replace the ACA as more important than helping the marketplaces work better (38% and 33%, respectively).

Overall, 52 percent of respondents now approve of ObamaCare - a 9 point jump since Trump's election - while 39 percent disapprove. "I think Donald Trump spoke to the American people during the campaign and that's why he's in office, because they're sick and exhausted of this kind of stuff happening in Washington, D.C., people saying, 'we can't do it, ' well why can't you do it?"

Republican congressman David Young angered conservatives in Iowa when he initially opposed a House Republican health care bill then weeks later backed it. Insurers say such a move would force them to leave the health law marketplaces or raise premiums.
