  A Kaiser Health Tracking Poll finds that more Americans have an unfavorable view of the AHCA than a favorable one (55% vs. 31%, respectively). The share with favorable views of the AHCA is about 20% points lower than the share with favorable views (49%) of the 2010 Affordable Care Act (ACA). The majority of Republicans (67%) have a favorable view of the AHCA.
