Half of all voters are opposed to repealing ObamaCare without a replacement, according to a new survey.

A Politico/Morning Consult poll finds that 50 percent of voters oppose repealing ObamaCare without replacing it, while just 36 percent of voters support an immediate repeal. 

A majority of Republicans, 58 percent, support a straight ObamaCare repeal, but just 21 percent of Democrats feel the same way.

Only 31 percent of poll respondents think Republicans should continue with their attempts to repeal and replace ObamaCare.

Another 18 percent think Republicans should move on to other agenda items, while 41 percent think Republicans should work to improve the current healthcare system.

The poll was conducted from June 20 to 24 among 3,981 registered voters. The margin of error is 2 percentage points.

Senate Republicans are considering passing a dramatically scaled-down version of their ObamaCare repeal bill, according to GOP aides.

The measure is an attempt to pass something and set up later negotiations with the House. The Senate is set to vote Tuesday on taking up an ObamaCare repeal measure that will be a shell for any future Senate action. 

President Trump on Tuesday took to Twitter to urge Republicans to keep their promise to repeal and replace ObamaCare.
