Uh oh. I thought Democratic spin doctors Pelosi and Reid said that the health care bill would grow ever more popular as people learned of all the wonderful provisions. But that doesn’t seem to be happening. Oops! Sounds like an example of political malpractice.
Support for repeal of the health care reform bill is at its highest level in over a month, while the number of voters who believe repeal will be good for the economy has reached a new high.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely Voters shows that 60% at least somewhat favor repeal of the health care reform law, while 36% oppose repeal.
The number that favors repeal is up five points from last week and is the highest level measured since July 1. The number that Strongly Favors repeal also ties the highest level ever – first measured in mid-April.
Overall support for repeal has ranged from 52% to 63% since the law was passed by Congress in March.
What’s a poor Democrat to do, with an election approaching and the public still opposed to his or her biggest vote of the session? I guess we will soon find out.
