Voters Doubt GOP Replacement But Not As Much As They Doubt Obamacare

Monday, March 13, 2017

The Republicans’ proposed replacement for the failing Obamacare system is less than a week old, but voters are dubious about its impact on the cost and quality of health care.  Still, the new proposal already earns better marks than the law it hopes to replace.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 41% of all Likely U.S. Voters believe the cost of health care will go up under the changes proposed in Obamacare. Only 29% think those costs will go down as a result of the new plan, while 19% expect costs to stay about the same. Eleven percent (11%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

The survey of 1,000 Likely U.S. Voters was conducted on March 8-9, 2017 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.
