POLL: NEW HEALTH CARE LOW
Posted by Andrew Roman on November 24, 2009
You see, the question is … will Democrats, who are running the whole kit and caboodle on Capitol Hill, actually start paying attention to the electorate on health care, or will they continue to meander down the path of we-know-better-than-you elitism?
For panicky Dems still wondering where it all went wrong in ten short months, keeping a brave face and shrugging off poll results for the cameras is one thing; trying to figure out how to save their political hydes behind closed doors is another. Make no mistake, there are a whole lot of donkeys who know they must start paying attention to the poll numbers at some point.
The game of determining how much of a hit the ship can sustain before the lifeboats become necessary isn’t one for the faint-of-heart.
The real question is: How low do the numbers have to go before the rumble coming from the peasants reaches the ears of the exalted ones, Harry Reid and Company?
Rasmussen says the numbers constinue their steady saunter south:
Just 38% of voters now favor the health care plan proposed by President Obama and congressional Democrats. That’s the lowest level of support measured for the plan in nearly two dozen tracking polls conducted since June.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 56% now oppose the plan.
Half the survey was conducted before the Senate voted late Saturday to begin debate on its version of the legislation. Support for the plan was slightly lower in the half of the survey conducted after the Senate vote.
Only 38% say “yay” to ObamaCare.
Even registered Democrats aren’t buying into the gobbledygook that health care costs will go down if ObamaCare becomes law. Only 16% of Americans believe that fairy tale.
