An increasing number of people are opposed to the House Republicans’ healthcare bill, according to a new poll.

A Politico/Morning Consult poll finds just 35 percent of voters approve of the American Health Care Act, passed earlier this year, compared to 49 percent of voters who disapprove of the legislation. 

Shortly after the House passed the bill, 38 percent of voters approved of it and 44 percent opposed it.

In the new poll, 30 percent of Republicans disapprove of the GOP healthcare bill.

{mosads}A majority, 65 percent, also says Republicans should “compromise with Democrats to reach bipartisan reforms” regarding the healthcare bill. Just 18 percent think the GOP should “work only with other Republicans in Congress to achieve reforms.”

The poll was conducted from June 15 to 19 among 2,051 registered voters. The margin of error is 2 percentage points.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Tuesday said Republicans would see a “discussion draft” of healthcare reform legislation on Thursday.

McConnell said reporters will get a chance to see the bill as well, addressing complaints from Democrats that GOP leaders have kept the bill secret.

Republicans may vote on the measure as soon as next week.
