    Whatta ya mean, "will"? I think do, now.

    The whole point of having the meeting at a school house was to pursuade people from causing trouble, just like the prayer vigil stunt. Obviously, they believe that folks are pissed off enough to start trouble at a school, too.

    This thread needs to be moved. The title does not match the article in the OP and is misleading. Which is not following the guide lines of the Breaking News forum.

    Nothing in the thread breaks rules, the title matches the article. The fact that Celticlord completely misrepresents what the article says is amusing, but not against the rules.

    Yeah, cuz no one but 76% of this country want a public option.... those 24% should dictate what the rest of us want...... By the way, these stats are from a conservative paper: The WSJ!

    That said, it does have the following to say. It seems that the misinformation junkies are winning some over. Also, 35% are obviously undecided having not gotten to the information yet. Further, I think many are pissed that the public option has gotten watered down. This contributes to some of the negative numbers






    Other polls saying the same things:

    Poll: Most Back Public Health Care Option - CBS News (linking a CBS/NYT Poll)

    Another poll shows 'public' support - First Read - msnbc.com (siting Quinnipac)

    More current polls:

    Majority back Obama on health care reform: poll - Yahoo! News

    Tracking Poll Examines Public Opinion About Health Care Reform

    Most Favor Health Care Reform In New Poll

    Again, while numbers do go down, I think they are due to my comments above, not to people not wanting a public option. To think that is just wishful thinking from the minority right.
    Jeezzzzzzzz.... why don't you use a real polling service instead of those plainly biased ones.

    By SCOTT RASMUSSEN
    For all the back and forth about the “public option,” Congressional Budget Office estimates and proposed tax hikes, the fundamentals are really what make health-care reform a hard sell to American voters. As members of Congress head home for the August recess, they should take a close look at some poll numbers before they attempt to pass any new legislation.

    The most important fundamental is that 68% of American voters have health-insurance coverage they rate good or excellent. That number comes from polling conducted this past weekend of 1,000 likely voters. Most of these voters approach the health-care reform debate fearing that they have more to lose than to gain.

    Adding to President Barack Obama’s challenge as he sells health-care reform to the public is the fact that most voters are skeptical about the government’s ability to do anything well. While the president says his plan will reduce costs, 53% believe it will have the opposite effect.

    There’s also the reality that 74% of voters rate the quality of care they now receive as good or excellent. And 50% fear that if Congress passes health-care reform, it will lead to a decline in the quality of that care.

    Advocates of health-care reform on Capitol Hill are up against something bigger than voters’ reactions to a variety of specific proposals. Our polling in February found that by a 2-1 margin, voters believe that no matter how bad things are Congress can always make matters worse. That’s one reason 78% believe passage of the current congressional health-care proposals is likely to mean higher taxes for the middle class.

    However, there are some numbers congressional Democrats can celebrate. Specifically, 63% of voters agreed with the president earlier this year when he said, “We must make it a priority to give every single American quality affordable health care.” Yet while they agree in theory, only 28% are currently willing to pay higher taxes to achieve that goal.
