NewsWorks Tonight host Dave Heller sits down for his weekly conversation with Gallup’s Frank Newport to talk about trends in U.S. opinion.
Republicans this week came out with their version of the new healthcare plan.
A review of recent polling on the topic shows that Americans do not want Obamacare repealed but want it modified.
