American voters oppose the GOP health care bill by a three-to-one margin, according to a Quinnipiac poll released Thursday.

The poll found that 56 percent of respondents opposed the American Health Care Act, compared to only 17 percent who supported the bill. Twenty-six percent did not know or had no answer.

Released the same day that the House is expected to vote on the bill, the poll showed voters’ unease about efforts to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.

The poll also found that respondents disapproved of President Donald Trump’s handling of health care as an issue: 61 percent disapproved, compared to 29 percent who approved and 10 percent who did not know or had no answer.

Quinnipiac surveyed 1,056 voters nationwide from March 16-21 using live interviews over land lines and cell phones. The poll’s margin of error is 3 percentage points.
