Biggest Threat to Trump's Agenda Comes from Fellow Republicans

CBS News Poll CBS News Poll

But when the question was posed as to whether they support "Obamacare" - the colloquial term for the Affordable Care Act - support for the law is higher. Sixty percent of respondents said that Trump and Republicans are responsible for the Affordable Care Act, but only 36 percent of Republicans and Trump supporters agreed with that proposition, with 56 percent and 53 percent, respectively, saying Democrats and former President Barack Obama are responsible.

The Republican Party's struggles to make any headway on health care reform have raised concerns about the future of President Trump's agenda, including tax reform and Trump's promise to repeal and replace ObamaCare in particular.

According to a poll conducted by two academic authors and The Washington Post, 52 percent of Republicans said they would back a postponement of the next election if Trump called for it.

Moving forward, a majority of the public (60 percent) says President Trump and Republicans in Congress are responsible for any problems with the ACA. And equal shares of respondents (21%) said they want the GOP to continue working on its own replacement bill or to abandon their efforts altogether.

If Trump breaks Obamacare through sabotage, he will own the consequences. Insurers have cited the uncertainty around health insurance markets caused by the Republican push for historically unpopular repeal legislation as one factor hurting them, along with Trump's threats to pause government payments to exchanges. Just 39 percent of Americans now view the law unfavorably, compared to 44 percent last month. Most of those who say it is a good thing say they do not want the law repealed at all (34% of the public overall), while fewer (23% of the public overall) say it is because they had concerns with the specific bill being debated.

Two-goal Mounie helps Huddersfield to shock win at Palace
And Mooy was the creator again as Huddersfield doubled their lead in much more aesthetically pleasing fashion. For every way in which it may have been wonderful for Wagner, it would have been a concern for De Boer.

And by almost 2-to-1, most say it's good that the Senate rejected the GOP repeal-and-replace bill last month.

The same number of people say that insurers decisions not to sell insurance plans in certain marketplaces will affect everyone with insurance. "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?"

This Kaiser Health Tracking Poll was designed and analyzed by public opinion researchers at the Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF).

The survey was conducted between August 1 and 6 and has a margin of error of plus or minus three percentage points.
