More than one-quarter of those surveyed did not give an opinion.

Even among Republicans, approval ratings for the bill don't reach 50 percent.

Only 46 percent of Republicans approve of the bill. Eighteen percent of independents approve of the legislation, and just 2 percent of Democrats say the same.

Forty-two percent of Americans also think the GOP is moving too fast in its efforts to repeal ObamaCare, according to the poll.

The poll was conducted from Sept. 21 to 24 among 1,202 respondents. Its margin of error is 3 percentage points.

Congressional Republicans are facing the possibility of failure in their efforts to repeal ObamaCare.
