The Democrats, who have said that Obamacare should stay in place, with some tweaks to the marketplace, have the public on their side.

A much smaller share of the public (17%), including four in 10 Republicans (40%) and Trump supporters (39%), say the President and his Administration should do what they can to make the law fail so they can replace it later. After using Twitter to blame McConnell for last month's Senate failure despite years of GOP vows to repeal it, Trump suggested Thursday that McConnell should perhaps step aside if he can't push that and other legislation through his chamber.

A majority - 57% - say they want Republicans to work across the aisle to make fixes to former President Barack Obama's signature healthcare law, also known as the Affordable Care Act. "GOP [Republican Party] approval has sharply declined this legislative session as congressional Republicans have struggled to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act", the pollster said in a press release.

With the Kaiser survey consistently showing clear overall public support for retaining Obama's law, the numbers help explain why some centrist Republicans who rely on moderate voters' support opposed repeal or backed it only after winning some concessions. While around 6 in 10 overall say Trump should not use such disruptive tactics, a majority of Republicans back that approach. Since insurers are legally required to reduce those costs, they say blocking the subsidies would force them to increase premiums for millions who buy private insurance, including those whose expenses aren't being reduced. After repeal of the health care law failed in Congress, Trump said, "We'll let Obamacare fail" and "We're not going to own it".

More than 7 in 10 Americans disapprove of the way that Republican leaders in Congress are handling their jobs. However, most Republicans (61%) and Trump supporters (63%) see continuing plans to repeal and replace the ACA as more important than helping the marketplaces work better (38% and 33%, respectively).

When asked about the Senate's failure to pass a repeal-and-replace bill, most Americans (60%) say it is a "good thing", while about a third (35%) say it is a "bad thing".

In fact, says the report, the majority of Americans think that health insurance companies charging higher premiums in certain marketplaces will have a negative impact on them and their family, while fewer (31 percent) say it will have no impact.
