Obamacare repeal still tops GOP voters’ to-do lists

New Survey Conducted by SSRS for POLITICO and Harvard

Republican leaders want to move past Obamacare repeal, but most GOP voters aren’t ready to let them do it.

That’s a key finding of the latest POLITICO-Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health poll, which finds the Trump administration’s messaging on health care is clearly resonating with the party’s base.

The poll asked Americans to review and score 10 top priorities for Congress through the end of the year. Fifty-three percent of Republican respondents said taking action to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act should be an “extremely important priority,” while another 26 percent of Republicans said it should be a “very important priority.” Only 16 percent of Republicans said ACA repeal should not be a priority for Congress.
