Senior citizens are not blaming President Trump for the Republican Party’s failure to repeal Obamacare says a new poll from the Association of Mature American Citizens, a 1.4-million member organization which supports conservative viewpoints.
“Moderate Republicans are taking the full brunt of blame for the health care failure,” says CEO Dan Weber, who notes that 30 percent of the respondents blame the GOP, but only 1 percent blame Mr. Trump.
“This is not surprising. The conservative base is still extremely enthusiastic about President Trump. People still view the president as a ‘speaks like me’ outsider who went to Washington to wage war against an out-ofcontrol bureaucracy,” says Mr. Weber.
The poll found that 26 percent blame Sen. John McCain; 22 percent fault the U.S. Senate, 15 percent the Democratic Party and 6 percent the U.S. House.
