    55% Favor Repeal of Health Care Bill

    Not good news for Obama socialist health care......


    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 Now that President Obama has signed the legislation into law, most voters want to see it repealed.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

    Oh well. The American Electorate seems to change its mind more often then Michael Jackson did on which race he wanted to be. We'll see come November, and then 2012.

    Only 55% and that coming from the rights favourite polling institute (for the most part)? Tsk, they could have padded the numbers better if you ask me.

    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.

    Of course people don't like this bill, there is no public option and it requires people to buy health insurance from corporate America. SOME of this bill I like though... But our government could have written a much better bill.

    I definitely agree. It's certainly not even close to what it should have been, but it's at least a start and has some very good parts. Sen Franken yesterday at our District 6 convention and said as much, but it moves it forward. AND it makes the radical righties heads explode. Two VERY good things.
