Rasmussen has a poll out today that does not bode well for Obamacare:
For the first time since Democrats in Congress passed the health care bill in March, a majority of U.S. voters believe the measure is likely to be repealed.A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 52% of Likely U.S. Voters think it is at least somewhat likely that the health care plan will be repealed. Thirty-three percent (33%) view repeal as unlikely. Those figures include 16% who believe repeal is Very Likely and 5% who believe it is Not at All Likely.
This result was no doubt affected by last week's court decision invalidating the legislation's insurance mandate. In any event, likely voters still really do not like the health care legislation:
Fifty-five percent (55%) of voters now favor repeal of the health care law, including 40% who Strongly Favor it. Forty-one percent (41%) are opposed to repeal, with 31% Strongly Opposed. Support for repeal has ranged from 50% to 63% in weekly tracking since the bill became law in late March. Last week, support for repeal was at 60%.
So voters both want the legislation to be repealed and now expect it will eventually be repealed. As a political matter, I don't know how Obama and his fellow Democrats continue to sell the supposed merits of this legislation in the face of such hostility from the electorate.
