But he pointed to some unreported results of the poll as "troublesome:" almost half of Republicans (47 percent) believe that Trump won the popular vote, while 68% believe millions of illegal immigrants voted, and 73% said that voter fraud happens somewhat or very often.

More than 7 in 10 Americans disapprove of the way that Republican leaders in Congress are handling their jobs. Seven in 10 Americans disapprove of Republican leaders in the House of Representatives and in the Senate based on their performances so far. This is the lowest job approval rating Congress has received from Republicans in 2017.

Here's a silver lining for President Donald Trump: he's still more popular than Congress.

The Hill reported that the poll suggests that Republicans themselves are evenly divided with 44 percent to 44 percent on whether the Republican-dominated congress has done well or failed so far. That figure holds across party lines, with only about one in five on each side saying they approve of Congress's work so far.

Most (60%) of the public say that President Trump and Republicans in Congress control the government and are responsible for any problems with the ACA going forward, twice the share (28%) who say President Obama and Democrats in Congress are responsible for such problems.

Congress left for its August recess without passing any sweeping, comprehensive legislation, failing in its attempt to pass something on health care and leaving tax reform on the docket.

The poll results are based on telephone interviews conducted between August 2 and 6, with a random sample of 1,017 adults across the country.

When asked whether it was good or bad that the Senate GOP had failed to repeal ObamaCare, answers were more direct.

Only 14% of Americans now say it's very likely that Trump and the Republicans will be able to pass repeal and replace legislation, down from 18% in July before the failure of the most recent effort to repeal and replace the law.

However, 56 percent of Americans say Republicans need to work with their Democratic colleagues to alter necessary changes to the current health care law. Most Democrats (70%) and independents (59%) favor the bi-partisan approach, though almost half of Republicans (49%) and Trump supporters (46%) want Republicans to continue pursuing their own plan to repeal and replace the law. The poll carries a margin of error of 3 percentage points.
