Luntz: Most Americans Willing to Wait Over a Year for Obamacare Fix
GOP pollster Frank Luntz appeared Tuesday on "Fox & Friends" saying the majority of Americans are willing to wait over a year for a successful replacement to Obamacare.
His latest poll shows that 96 percent of Republicans want to replace Obamacare, while 84 percent of Democrats would like to keep it. Among swing voters, 60 percent would like to see Obamacare replaced.
"The people do want Obamacare repealed, but they also want an alternative put in its place. ... This is clear for the GOP, and they have about 60 days to do it. The Republicans who voted for Donald Trump are expecting action on Obamacare, and they want it quick," Luntz said.
According to the poll, 28 percent are willing to wait "as long as it takes" for a successful replacement to Obamacare to be adopted. Another 25 percent are willing to wait one to three years.
"There's the repeal part that they want to do quickly," Luntz said. "The replace part...they're prepared to wait a year. If you add it all up, about half of Americans are willing to wait a year to make sure it's all done step by step."
Luntz said Americans are seeking a health care program that is affordable, gives them more control and allows them a choice.
The 115th Congress met for the first time Tuesday, with Obamacare just one of many topics on the agenda.
