A majority of voters disapprove of the GOP's healthcare plan aimed at repealing and replacing ObamaCare, according to a new survey.

A Quinnipiac University poll finds 57 percent of voters disapprove of the plan, compared to just 20 percent who support it.

The poll also finds that 44 percent of voters say they are less likely to vote for a senator or representative if they support the GOP healthcare plan.

Just 20 percent say they are more likely and another 31 percent say the issue won't have an effect on who they support.

Forty-four percent of Americans say they think health insurance costs will rise under the GOP's plan, compared to just 12 percent who expect costs will go down.

A majority, 57 percent of voters, say fewer Americans will be covered under the GOP plan.

A majority of voters also disapprove of the way President Trump is handling the issue of healthcare.

The poll was conducted from May 17 to 23 among 1,404 voters. The margin of error is 3 percent.

The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) in its analysis released Wednesday said the Republican healthcare bill would result in 23 million fewer people with insurance over a decade, steep premium increases for older people and price hikes for many people with pre-existing conditions.
