Many Voters Dislike Trump's Cuts to Health Insurer Subsidies



But voters more likely to view Democrats, Obama as responsible for the Affordable Care Act

Morning Consult/Politico Poll

Though the Trump administration’s action could impact millions of people who get coverage through Obamacare, most voters agree that former President Barack Obama and Democrats in Congress – not Trump or congressional Republicans – are most responsible for the state of the ACA.

That sentiment transcended party lines, with 61 percent of Democrats and independents agreeing with 78 percent of Republicans that Obama is most responsible for the current state of the 2010 law.

Even as some members of Congress push to stabilize the ACA, voters appeared confused about what exactly Congress has done on Obamacare. Nearly a fourth (24 percent) said Obamacare has already been repealed in part, and another 15 percent of survey respondents said the law has been repealed in full or repealed and replaced. (Forty-five percent correctly noted that Obamacare has not been scrapped or replaced.)
