Majority says current Congress a failure so far

CBS News Poll

"Democrats have given Congress fairly low ratings throughout 2017, ranging from 10% to 19%", the pollster noted. Far fewer want Republicans to continue working on their own plan to repeal and replace the law (21%) or move on to other priorities (21%). But nearly everything he has achieved has been directly in line with traditional Republican priorities, while most of the things that are peculiar to Trump have failed or stalled out.

Overall, 52 percent of respondents now approve of ObamaCare - a 9 point jump since Trump's election - while 39 percent disapprove.

"Were Trump to seriously propose postponing the election, there would be a torrent of opposition, which would most likely include prominent Republicans". 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).

The health law is more popular than ever with 52 percent of respondents saying they hold a favorable view of it. Democrats' approval has remained the same, and approval among independents has slipped four percentage points to 16%. "GOP [Republican Party] approval has sharply declined this legislative session as congressional Republicans have struggled to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act", the pollster said in a press release.

Now all that some lawmakers have to show for the politically tough vote is the word "mean" - President Donald Trump's description of legislation that would have made deep cuts in Medicaid, allowed states to opt out of coverage for essential benefits and knocked 23 million Americans off insurance.

But he pointed to some unreported results of the poll as "troublesome:" almost half of Republicans (47 percent) believe that Trump won the popular vote, while 68% believe millions of illegal immigrants voted, and 73% said that voter fraud happens somewhat or very often.

When asked about the 2010 health care law, a slim majority of Americans (51%) say they oppose the legislation vs. 42% of Americans who favor the bill.
