About half of Republicans and supporters of President Trump say the Trump administration should do what they can to make the law work (52 percent and 51 percent, respectively) while about four in ten say they should do what they can to make the law fail (40 percent and 39 percent, respectively). "Senator Mitch McConnellsaid I had 'excessive expectations, ' but I don't think so", Trump tweeted. They cast him as a Republican intent on delivering for the party and the president on taxes and budget this fall. Insurers say such a move would force them to leave the health law marketplaces or raise premiums.

Taking to Twitter, Trump retweeted a pair of "Fox & Friends" headlines recounting his rhetorical battle with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and other member of the GOP caucus.

For a White House that often seems more concerned with cementing support from Trump's loyalists than embracing the political center, that might help explain the president's persistence on the issue. Most of those who say it is a good thing say they do not want the law repealed at all (34% of the public overall), while fewer (23% of the public overall) say it is because they had concerns with the specific bill being debated. Analysts say that would roil insurance markets because fewer healthy people would buy policies, leaving them with greater proportions of expensive, seriously ill customers.
"All of this bodes well for Democrats", Skelley said.

Asked later Thursday about McConnell, Trump suggested that if the Kentucky Republican can't get health care reform, tax reform and infrastructure spending done, he should consider stepping aside. Favorable views have increased 9 percentage points since the 2016 presidential election, with the trend occurring among Democrats, independents, and Republicans.
