    Opposition to health care legislation lingers

    Here's another poll from USA Today/Gallup showing that the American people don't like the health care proposals offered up by Obama and the democrats.

    We all know the democrats support the proposals, and the republicans oppose, but pay close attention to what the independents think.

    Opposition to health care legislation lingers
    By Susan Page, USA TODAY


    WASHINGTON As the debate over a health care bill enters a critical stage, a new USA TODAY/Gallup Poll finds Americans inclined to oppose congressional passage of the legislation this year.
    The survey, taken Friday through Sunday, finds 42% against a bill, 35% in support of it. Despite nearly a year of presidential speeches, congressional hearings and TV ad campaigns by interest groups, more than one in five still doesn't have a strong opinion.

    When pressed about how they were leaning, 49% overall said they would urge their member of Congress to vote against a bill; 44% would urge a vote for it.

    ...

    Those Democrats surveyed were overwhelmingly in favor of a bill: 76% to 17%. By an even wider margin, 86% to 12%, Republicans were opposed. Independents were against it by 53% to 37%.

    Obama has seen his approval rating on handling health care policy slide a bit since the summer. Now, 40% approve, 53% disapprove, down from a 44% approval rating in July.

    I'd like to see a poll that was among likely voters who think they know a little something about economics. Those would be interesting results.

    Why?

    That would look even worse for the democrats... That's probably why no such poll is taken.

    And note that I don't mean a poll taken among economists, since most economists are Democrats and most economists didn't see any bubble.

    And therefore most economists are part of weekly polls and are the only intelligent people polled, while illiterate Republican hicks makeup the uninformed dolts in every poll.

    Re: Opposition to health care legislation lingers

    What I find the most telling in this poll, is the the fact that Independents are against it by 53% to 37% margin.

    Independents are the ones who gave control of the Congress, Senate and White House to the democrats, and their opposition should be a giant red flag to them... yet they ignore them and continue pushing an agenda the the majority of the country just doesn't support.

    Well those 53% are illiterate dolts like the Republican hicks polled.

    Another inconvenient fact neutralised... the progressive way.
