Poll: Majority disapproves of latest ObamaCare repeal bill

A majority of Americans in a new survey doesn't approve of the GOP's latest ObamaCare repeal bill.

A CBS News poll finds 52 percent of Americans disapprove of the GOP's latest effort to repeal and replace ObamaCare.

Just 20 percent of respondents in the poll approve of the bill, sponsored by Sens. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.).

More than one-quarter of those surveyed did not give an opinion.

Even among Republicans, approval ratings for the bill don't reach 50 percent.

Only 46 percent of Republicans approve of the bill. Eighteen percent of independents approve of the legislation, and just 2 percent of Democrats say the same.

Forty-two percent of Americans also think the GOP is moving too fast in its efforts to repeal ObamaCare, according to the poll.

The poll was conducted from Sept. 21 to 24 among 1,202 respondents. Its margin of error is 3 percentage points.

Congressional Republicans are facing the possibility of failure in their efforts to repeal ObamaCare.

Republicans including Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Rand Paul (R-Ky.) have said they plan to vote against the measure, and Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) has expressed strong reservations with the bill.

Republicans can afford to lose only two votes to pass the bill in the face of unanimous Democratic opposition.
