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.
