A majority of likely voters in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District hold an unfavorable impression of the Republican plan to repeal and replace ObamaCare, according to a new poll by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

While 62 percent hold an unfavorable impression of the legislation, 25 percent have a favorable impression of the plan, the poll said. Thirteen percent did not know or did not provide an answer.

The results of the survey come with the district about a week away from going to the polls for the special election that has drawn both funds and attention throughout the country. 

Republicans in the Senate have said a vote on the legislation could come in July.

Abt Associates conducted the poll from June 5 to June 8, surveying 1,000 registered voters. It has a margin of error of 4 percentage points.

Democrat Jon Ossoff and Republican Karen Handel will face off on June 20 in the special election for the seat vacated by Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price.
