    55% Favor Repeal of Health Care Bill - Rasmussen Reports

    March 25 2010


    Just before the House of Representatives passed sweeping health care legislation last Sunday, 41% of voters nationwide favored the legislation while 54% were opposed. Now that President Obama has signed the legislation into law, most voters want to see it repealed.



    The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey, conducted on the first two nights after the president signed the bill, shows that 55% favor repealing the legislation. Forty-two percent (42%) oppose repeal. Those figures include 46% who Strongly Favor repeal and 35% who Strongly Oppose it.

    In terms of Election 2010, 52% say they’d vote for a candidate who favors repeal over one who does not. Forty-one percent (41%) would cast their vote for someone who opposes repeal.

    Not surprisingly, Republicans overwhelmingly favor repeal while most Democrats are opposed. Among those not affiliated with either major party, 59% favor repeal, and 35% are against it.

    Most senior citizens (59%) also favor repeal. Earlier, voters over 65 had been more opposed to the health care plan than younger adults. Seniors use the health care system more than anyone else
    Bring it on!!!!! If Repubs think running on repeal is the way to go (even if its somewhere between very impractical and almost impossible) let them. Once again, a party without positive issues. Though I love the irony of the Republicans running on a platform that advocates health care reform.

    In a week or two the numbers will be very different, and in a month or two even more different.. and I dont expect it to go up, but down.
    Yeh, it's a ****ing conspiracy and they made up the data, that's always the case when the numbers don't fall like you want them too .

    It's also a bit unrealistic and I think mathematically impossible for Republicans to take enough seats in the fall elections to gain a 2/3's majority in the congress.

    So in essence, we're stuck with yet another bloated government welfare program. Thanks for nothing!!!

    Is that why you claimed that "Rassussen is a left wing pollster that only polls liberals"...when they post a poll that you disagree with?

    I remember that debate. I was a kid when that was passed, but I remember all the rancor over that. A few people were calling some members of Congress Soviet stooges. LOL.
