Health Care Reform Support falls to new low

S. Lindsey's picture

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.

Intensity remains stronger among those who oppose the push to change the nation’s health care system: 21% Strongly Favor the plan while 43% are Strongly Opposed.

Only 16% now believe passage of the plan will lead to lower health care costs.

Nearly four times as many (60%) believe the plan will increase health care costs. Most (54%) also believe passage of the plan will hurt the quality of care.

As has been the case for months, Democrats favor the plan while Republicans and voters not affiliated with either major party are opposed.

The latest numbers show support from 73% of those in the president’s party. The plan is opposed by 83% of Republicans and 70% of unaffiliated voters. Rasmussen Polls 11/23/09

It has been clear for some time that the majority of Americans do not want the Government to “FIX” our Healthcare.. But we are going to get it rammed down our throats rather we want it or not..

Looking at the Independent voters out there. A 70% majority clearly oppose this massive takeover of our Economy. This does not bode well for the Democrats in 2010. They had to have the independents in order to bring Obama to power.. It looks now as if that support will not be there.

If they (Dems) continue with this folly they will be looking at a total rout in 2010.. and again in 2012.
