Even more stinging, of those who believe so, 67 percent believe the Trump team was in on it.

Of those polled who count themselves as conservative Republicans, Trump received a 90-percent approval. The repeal effort is opposed by all Democrats, and the loss of a single Republican vote could doom it.
