    nice try.

    Health Care Reform
    Although House Passes Health Care, Most Voters Still Oppose the Legislation

    Monday, November 09, 2009

    Over the weekend, Democratic leaders spoke of an historic moment as health care reform legislation passed the House of Representatives. But that legislative victory failed to significantly move public opinion.

    The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 45% now favor the health care plan proposed by President Obama and congressional Democrats. Most (52%) remain opposed.

    Only 25% Strongly Support the plan while 42% are Strongly Opposed.

    The Huffington Post is as left-leaning as Rasmussen is right-leaning. They both are generally accepted as decent pollsters.

    Sure. In the UK.

    In the U.S., we have a representative democracy, which means that elected officials are to represent the interests and wishes of their constituency.

    Thanks for playing, though.

    Rasmussen is on of the most accurate pollsters out there.

    Only the majority of koolaid drinkers. Americans don't support this. They know "scam" when they see it.

    Has anyone bothered to comment on the fact that the bill passed 220:215, and that this guys one vote was irrelevant and thus more than likely allowed by the House Minority Whip to keep that district in America's column after the 2010 elections?

    I'm not saying that they aren't. They are generally accepted in the polling community, as it Huffington Post. HP is generally viewed as left-leaning, Rasmussen as right-leaning, but both are generally considered credible.

    Re: Cao Jolts the House

    From your source-

    "Earlier in the week, after pollsters for NBC dropped the word "choice" from their question on a public option, they found that only 43 percent of the public were in favor of "creating a public health care plan administered by the federal government that would compete directly with private health insurance companies." "
