New poll shows GOP support plummets with Trumpcare backing

The Democratic super PAC Priorities USA is shining a spotlight on the GOP health care bill's terrible polling. With a House vote imminent, it polled voters in 20 congressional districts (11 went for Hillary Clinton; 9 for Donald Trump) with a Republican member of Congress …

  • After being told that their member of Congress supports the GOP bill, net voter support dropped from +12 to -21.
  • The number that should terrify Republicans: voters generally said they'd reelect their member of Congress 44-38, but after being told about their member's support for the health care bill, that shifted to 45-38 in favor of a Democratic challenger.
