A new Kaiser Health Tracking poll finds 64% of the public think it's a "good thing" that the Republican replacement for Obamacare didn't pass — but they blame nearly everyone involved.

Here are the key findings from the poll, broken down along party lines:

Here's why some view it as a "good thing":

  • 31% said they don't want Obamacare repealed
  • 29% supported the GOP's plan to repeal, but had issues with the AHCA replacement proposal

AHCA opponents spread the blame almost evenly:

  • 24% say Congressional Democrats are to blame for the bill not passing
  • 33% say Congressional Republicans are to blame
  • 28% blame Trump

Why it matters: As Republicans fumble to propose a successful ACA replacement, this study suggests they'll have to work harder to convince the many Americans who are already unhappy with their efforts. Furthermore, the study revealed that Democrats and 51% of Republicans think Trump and his administration should work to make the current health law successful.

President Trump announced late Tuesday that the White House attempt to halt federal agencies' anti-racism training would be expanded to block federal contractors from "promoting radical ideologies that divide Americans by race or sex."

Why it matters: The executive order appears to give the government the ability to cancel contracts if anti-racist or diversity trainings focused on sexual identity or gender are organized. The memo applies to executive departments and agencies, the U.S. military, federal contractors and federal grant recipients.
