New NBC News/WSJ Poll: Only 12% Support GOP Health Care Efforts in Trump Counties

Just 12 percent of Americans - including Republicans, Democrats and Independents - living in the counties that fueled Donald Trump's 2016 presidential win support the Republican Party's efforts on health care, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll specifically of these regions.

By contrast, 41 percent said the health care legislation that the House of Representatives passed in May, also known as the American Health Care Act (AHCA), was a bad idea while 47 percent had no opinion or say they're not sure.

Among Trump voters in these counties, only 25 percent believe the AHCA is a good idea, 16 percent think it's a bad idea and 59 percent have no opinion or are unsure.

Last month's national NBCNews/Wall Street Journal poll found 16 percent of all Americans believed the AHCA is a good idea, versus 48 percent who see it as a bad idea.
