PAUL RYAN IS CURRENTLY THE LEAST POPULAR POLITICIAN IN THE UNITED STATES

Donald Trump blamed the failure of the AHCA last week on Congressional Democrats, but voters aren’t buying that.

Just 31% think Democrats are responsible for the bill’s failure, to 52% who pin the blame on Congressional Republicans. Trump may be losing out to Democrats on this issue, but he’s coming out ahead on the health care blame game within his own party. Overall voters blame Paul Ryan more than Trump for the failure of the AHCA, 42/33. But specifically among GOP voters, 54% blame Ryan to only 13% who pin the blame on Trump.

This issue has made Paul Ryan into the most unpopular politician in the country. At the start of the Trump administration, he had a 33% approval rating, with 43% of voters disapproving of him. Now his approval has plunged to 21%, with his disapproval spiking all the way up to 61%. Ryan’s particularly seen his image crater with Trump voters- what was a 53/23 approval rating with them in mid-January is now negative at 35/41.
