Biggest Threat to Trump's Agenda Comes from Fellow Republicans

12 August 2017, 11:22 | Terri Saunders

About half of Republicans and supporters of President Trump say the Trump administration should do what they can to make the law work (52 percent and 51 percent, respectively) while about four in ten say they should do what they can to make the law fail (40 percent and 39 percent, respectively).

Independents were frustrated with the two-term congressman's embrace of a partisan approach to repealing and replacing Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act.

Paul voted against McConnell's plan to repeal and replace Obamacare - saying it was a bailout for insurance companies - but voted for a bill that would repeal the law and let congressional Republicans hash out a replacement plan in a conference committee.

Similarly, six in 10 (60%) say that insurers' decisions not to sell insurance plans in certain marketplaces will affect everyone with insurance, and three-quarters (76%) say so about insurers charging higher premiums in certain marketplaces.

The GOP-controlled Senate failed to pass a health bill before it left for a summer break last week.

About 60 percent of people says that Trump and congressional Republicans are responsible for any problems with the health law.

Trump is, very likely, aware of three things when it comes to the Republican Party.

Trump praises new United Nations sanctions on North Korea
As a matter of urgency, Ruggiero argued, the US should punish Chinese banks and companies helping North Korea evade sanctions. Ri also said Pyongyang will "under no circumstances" negotiate anything to do with its nuclear or ballistic missile programs.


Paul said Friday that he doesn't think efforts to repeal Obamacare are over. The Republican Party's slim majority in the Senate allows for no dissent, and it took just seven undocumented Democrats within the GOP ranks to scuttle the last attempt at full repeal.

While some have speculated that picking a fight with McConnell is unsafe, particularly because McConnell controls the Senate's agenda, Paul said he didn't think the public feud would deteriorate their relationship or the relationship Trump has with Congress.

"I talk to the president a lot", he said.

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.

That's what President Trump and his family are going through right now. Favorable views have increased 9 percentage points since the 2016 presidential election, with the trend occurring among Democrats, independents, and Republicans. Far fewer want Republicans to continue working on their own plan to repeal and replace the law (21%) or move on to other priorities (21%).

Designed and analyzed by public opinion researchers at the Kaiser Family Foundation, the poll was conducted from August 1 - 6 among a nationally representative random digit dial telephone sample of 1,211 adults.
