Rasmussen Finds Little Movement After Obama’s Speech

A Rasmussen poll released this morning found that Obama received a negligible bump from his speech on Wednesday, with support for Democratic health care legislation now at 46 percent, up from 44 percent before the speech. A majority of 51 percent are still opposed, according to the poll. Perhaps most interestingly, all of the bump came from an increase in support among Democrats. We’ll have to see how this plays out in other polls, but my guess is that before the speech some liberals had turned against the effort fearing that Obama was going to formally ditch the idea of including a government-run plan, but by reiterating support for it, he probably solidified support from his left flank. Of course, if he ultimately drops the governemnt plan, as everybody expects, then support from liberals could evaporate.
