A majority of likely voters in Georgia’s sixth congressional district hold an unfavorable impression of the Republican plan to repeal and replace ObamaCare, according to a new poll by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
While 62 percent hold an unfavorable impression of the legislation, 25 percent have a favorable impression of the plan, the poll said. Thirteen percent did not know or did not provide an answer.
Additionally, 81 percent said healthcare is either an “extremely important” or “very important” issue in the upcoming June 20 special election. Fourteen percent said it is a “somewhat important” issue and 5 percent said it was “less important.”
Abt Associates conducted the poll from June 5 through June 8, surveying 1,000 registered voters. It has a margin of error of 4 percentage points.
Democrat Jon Ossoff and Republican Karen Handel will face off on June 20 in the special election for the seat vacated by Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price.
