A new poll suggests voters are more concerned about health care and the president’s tax plans than they are about Trump.
The Kaiser Family Foundation/CBS News poll finds 58 percent of respondents are concerned about the economy, up from 54 percent in February, while 37 percent are concerned Trump’s plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act will hurt their family’s finances.
The survey also finds 57 percent of Americans believe the president should not take personal responsibility for his policies, compared to 38 percent who believe he should.
The survey also found 58 percent believe the economy is in better shape than it was a year ago, up 3 points from a month ago.
“The economic environment for middle-class families and their families is getting better and we’re seeing a decline in the uninsured rate.
That’s a good thing, but it’s also a sign of our economic recovery.
The American people are beginning to feel better about the situation,” said Jason Furman, president of the Foundation for Economic Education.
A year ago 49 percent of voters said the economy was in better condition than it had been a year before, while 38 percent said the same about health insurance.
Forty-one percent of Democrats and 50 percent of Republicans said the president had done the right thing in enacting the Affordable Act, while 41 percent said he had done it the wrong way.
A month ago, 41 percent of independents said the health care law was the right way to protect the economy.
The poll of 1,012 adults was conducted April 7-14.
