"We've just seen three new polls on the Senate GOP's health-care bill, and each of them paints an increasingly dire picture for Republicans.
Support for the bill is languishing between just 1 out of every 8 Americans and 1 out of every 6 Americans, according to polls from the Marist (17 percent), USA Today/Suffolk University (12 percent) and Quinnipiac University (16 percent). In each case, a majority opposes the bill. That's a level of popularity so low that it's difficult to believe the bill is being entertained.
It's all a pretty stunning indictment of the GOP's failure to sell the bill. Republicans have focused like a laser on passing the legislation quickly — and secretively — in hopes of getting to a conference committee where the House and Senate can negotiate the final product. In the meantime, the American people have soured on the bill, disliking almost everything about it.
