Sample and Methodology detail

Only 21 percent of American voters approve of the Republican health care plan passed by the U.S. House of Representatives last week, a slight improvement over the 17 percent who approved of the first health care plan in March, according to a Quinnipiac University national poll released today. Overall, the current health plan goes down 56 - 21 percent.

Except for an anemic 48 - 16 percent support among Republicans, every listed party, gender, educational, age and racial group opposes the plan, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN- uh-pe-ack) University Poll finds.

Under the new plan, their health insurance costs will go up, 42 percent of voters say, while 11 percent say they will go down and 37 percent say insurance costs will stay the same.

American voters approve 64 - 32 percent of the current law which prevents health insurance companies from raising premiums on people with pre-existing conditions.

Voters say 75 - 21 percent, including 59 - 34 percent among Republicans, that it's a "bad idea" to give states the ability to allow health insurance companies to raise rates on people with pre-existing conditions.

A total of 96 percent of voters say it's "very important" or "somewhat important" that health insurance be affordable for all Americans.

American voters disapprove 66 - 28 percent of the way President Donald Trump is handling health care.

"Republicans gave up on their first attempt to repeal and replace Obamacare when a March 23 Quinnipiac University poll showed 17 percent of American voters supported their bill.

"The second attempt wins the support of 21 percent of voters," said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

"The grim diagnosis from voters: Health care will cost more and deliver less."

American voters disapprove 54 - 34 percent of the way President Trump is handling taxes and disapprove 52 - 30 percent of his tax plan.

Disapproval of Trump's tax plan rises to 74 - 18 percent, including 66 - 27 percent among Republicans, if the plan "significantly increased the national deficit."

If the tax plan "resulted in significant spending cuts," 46 percent approve and 45 percent disapprove.

Voters say 57 - 27 percent that the tax plan will increase the deficit. Republicans disagree, saying 47 - 35 percent it will not increase the deficit. All other listed party, gender, education, age or racial groups say it will increase the deficit.

Looking at elements of the Trump tax plan, American voters say:
  • 55 - 39 percent that it's a "bad idea" to lower the corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 15 percent;
  • 49 - 38 percent that it's a "bad idea" to reduce the number of tax brackets to three;
  • 54 - 35 percent that it's a "good idea" to increase the standard deduction;
  • 57 - 35 percent that it's a "bad idea" to eliminate all tax deductions except for mortgage interest and charitable giving;
  • 48 - 43 percent that it's a "good idea" to eliminate the estate tax.
Trump's tax plan will hurt the nation, 49 percent of voters say, while 29 percent say it will help the nation and 13 percent say it will have no impact.

The tax plan will hurt them personally, 31 percent of voters say, while 20 percent say it will help them and 42 percent say it will have no impact.

Wealthy Americans will benefit most from the tax plan, 63 percent of voters say, while 27 percent say the middle class will benefit most and 4 percent say low income tax payers will benefit most.

From May 4 - 9, Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,078 voters nationwide with a margin of error of +/- 3 percentage points. Live interviewers call landlines and cell phones.
