The New York Times conducted research on voters support of TrumpCare by analyzing data from several different polls and factoring in state and demographic profiles.  According to the research, “Across all the states that voted for President Trump last year, we estimate that support for the A.H.C.A. is rarely over 35 percent.”

A separate poll supports these findings, with CNBC reporting that the recent survey found “62 percent of American voters disapprove of the Republican health-care plan, compared with just 17 percent who approve of it.”

And even the states that appear to have the most backing for the bill—like Oklahoma, West Virginia, Tennessee, and Florida—the percentage of residents who oppose it is still higher.

The House bill, which cuts back on federal Medicaid spending and replaces Obama-era subsidies with inadequate tax credits, has been estimated by the CBO and other nonpartisan experts to cause 23 million more people to lose their insurance.

CBS News reports that several prominent groups have since spoken out against it including the American Medical Association and the American College of Physicians.

President Trump is also said to have recently called the House health care bill “mean,” according to news outlets which were told about his comments to Republican senators by inside sources.
