    The majority favor the public option ( to say nothing of liberal Delaware)

    Numerous polls show this.

    Health Policy

    NYT 9/23

    "Would you favor or oppose the government offering everyone a government-administered health insurance plan -- something like the Medicare coverage that people 65 and older get -- that would compete with private health insurance plans?"


    Yes! 65%

    His voting record is just as far left as the rest of them, but you're right, he's not a liberal. He's a Socialist.

    At least some of those voters are undoubtedly angry because they view the bill as insufficient, or compromising too much, or not going far ENOUGH.

    Gallup also just released this poll.
