House Republicans’ bill to repeal and replace Obamacare is less popular than more than a dozen major bills spanning nearly three decades, according to analysis from Massachusetts Institute of Technology political science professor Chris Warshaw.

Using historical data from the Roper Center’s polling archives, Warshaw found that the American Health Care Act’s average approval numbers lagged significantly behind polling on everything from Bill Clinton’s failed 1993 attempt at health care reform to the 2008 bank bailout.

“It’s rare for Congress to move ahead with legislation when the signs are this clear that the public doesn’t want it,” Axios’ David Nather and Lazaro Gamio noted.

Recent polling on the GOP’s health care plans have reported feelings ranging from tepid to dismal. The most positive surveys, from Morning Consult and Politico, show favorable opinion of the proposals hovering near 40 percent, with most other polling putting it well below 30 percent. By contrast, average support for Obamacare currently stands at 46 percent and never fell below about 38 percent.

In the news today, Mitch McConnell may reach out to democrats in the Senate to seek a compromise.  Between that story and Trump bringing up the election meddling with Putin, I almost fainted watching the news tonight.

It'll be interesting as both Obama and Trump stepped back when their healthcare bills were being crafted and at least with Obama he wished he had been more hands-on with it to prevent some of its aspects that people didn't like.  That being said, I'm not sure that Trump would be able to assist in the creation of a bill, but that aside I'm curious what his stance will be in the event that it gets passed and is equally (if not more) unpopular.

Being unpopular has never bothered Republicans.  The only way they win elections is via gerrymandering, fraud or manipulation of their feeble minded voters.
