    House Republicans could lose the vote for their party's signature health care bill, according to a tally by NBC News.

    As of Tuesday afternoon, with 48 hours to go before the vote, at least 27 Republicans have said they are voting against or are leaning toward voting against the American Health Care Act, which would defeat the bill and deal a huge defeat to the GOP and President Donald Trump.

    The tally comes after Trump traveled to Capitol Hill Tuesday morning attempting to seal the deal with undecided members of his party.

    The key vote is expected Thursday. Jim Jordan of Ohio, Mark Meadows of North Carolina and Louie Gohmert of Texas are just a few of the Republicans who are either against the bill or leaning against it.
