    Support for Health Care Plan Falls to New Low

    If the Democrats keep this up, they will be committing political suicide, which wouldn't bother me a bit.

    Support for Health Care Plan Falls to New Low

    Monday, November 23, 2009


    Just 38% of voters now favor the health care plan proposed by President Obama and congressional Democrats. Thatís the lowest level of support measured for the plan in nearly two dozen tracking polls conducted since June.

    The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 56% now oppose the plan.

    Half the survey was conducted before the Senate voted late Saturday to begin debate on its version of the legislation. Support for the plan was slightly lower in the half of the survey conducted after the Senate vote.

    Prior to this, support for the plan had never fallen below 41%. Last week, support for the plan was at 47%. Two weeks ago, the effort was supported by 45% of voters.

    Show us a poll, any poll, that has come out since HR 3200 that shows a solid majority of support for Obamacare. Thanks in advance.

    Newsflash: 51% isn't a solid majority.

    As far as I know, there aren't any... But lets see if our democrat friend can find any.

    I'd hate you if there wasn't a beautiful woman in your avatar.

    Re: Support for Health Care Plan Falls to New Low

    Woah, woah, let me clear things up:

    I'm not a Democrat.
    I am a progressive. I don't ever support moderate or conservative Democrats.
    I'll support whoever is a liberal or progressive.
    I'm certainly not stuck with the party.

    Also, I hate this bill. It is GARBAGE. It is a giveaway for HICs and other murderous death-profiteers. It doesn't even do anything until 2014.

    I don't deny that most people also oppose this bill.

    I simply don't trust Rasmussen. I don't care WHAT the numbers say. Rasmussen is garbage. Period.

    The highest approval rating I recall seeing is 53%.
