As the U.S. Senate continues to debate their plan to repeal and replace the 2010 Affordable Care Act, the latest Kaiser Family Foundation tracking poll finds the public souring on the effort with a growing majority opposed to the plan.

The poll also finds a large majority of the public (71%) would rather see Congressional Republicans work with Democrats to make improvements to the Affordable Care Act but not repeal the law, compared to one-fourth (23%) who say they would want Republicans to continue working on their own plan to repeal and replace the law.
