Support for the Republican legislation to repeal and replace ObamaCare has declined since the House of Representatives narrowly passed the bill last week.

A Morning Consult/Politico poll published Wednesday morning found just 38 percent of voters support the Republican healthcare bill, down 4 points from 42 percent of voters last week.

The poll found 44 of voters disapprove of the bill, a jump from 37 percent in April.

The House narrowly passed the American Health Care Act last week by a 217-213 vote. A healthcare working group is expecting to make several changes to the bill in the Senate.

The new poll also found mixed support on which party can best handle healthcare. Forty-five percent now support Democrats, while 36 percent say they trust Republicans in Congress on the issue.

The new Morning Consult/Politico poll was conducted May 4–6 from a survey of 1,996 registered voters. It has a margin of error of 2 points.
