Stunning figures from Rasmussen …
… on what
the public thinks about Obamacare, from a poll
taken since the Senate’s passage of the bill one week ago, compiled
by Jeffrey Anderson at The Weekly Standard
Likely voters oppose Obamacare by more than the (18-point) margin by which Ronald Reagan beat Walter Mondale: 58 percent to 39 percent.
There are far more likely voters who “strongly” oppose Obamacare (46 percent) than there are likely voters who support it even “somewhat” (39 percent).
Only 24 percent of likely voters think that the quality of health care would get better under Obamacare, while 54 percent think it would get worse — a gap of 30 percent.
Only 13 percent of likely voters think that the cost of health would go down under Obamacare, while 63 percent think it would rise — a gap of 50 percent.
Seniors oppose Obamacare by more than 2 to 1: 63 percent to 31 percent.
And the worst news of all for Democrats…
Independents oppose Obamacare by the head-turning tally of 66 percent to 28 percent.
