    Twelve percent of Americans living in “Trump counties” support the GOP efforts on health care, according to an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.

    Respondents to the survey from 439 counties in 16 states where Donald Trump won in the 2016 election were asked about their views on the health care legislation passed in May by the House of Representatives, NBC News reported Tuesday.

    Among Trump voters in these counties, just 25 percent believe the House Republican health care bill is a good idea, while 16 percent think it’s a bad idea and 59 percent are unsure or have no opinion.

    Senate Republican efforts to reform health care came to a halt on Tuesday when the plan to repeal Obamacare and delay replacement was opposed by three senators.
