Fox News poll: ObamaCare more popular than GOP tax law

ObamaCare is more popular than the GOP tax law, according to a new Fox News poll.

The 2010 health-care law registered a 51 percent approval rating, compared with 40 percent for the 2017 Republican tax cuts, according to the survey released on Thursday.

Congressional Republicans tried and failed to repeal the Affordable Care Act last year, but they continue to criticize it.

Democrats say the Trump administration has been working to undermine the law through new regulations, and Trump has taken credit for "essentially" repealing ObamaCare.

The less-popular tax measure was signed into law by Trump in December. Republican leaders in Washington have been praising the law's tax cuts for small businesses and individuals, though the issue has not gotten as much attention on the campaign trail ahead of the midterm elections in November.

The poll was conducted Aug. 19–21 and has a margin of error of 3 percentage points.
