Following President Obama’s speech to Congress last week, support for his health care reform plan increased steadily to a peak of 51% yesterday. However, the bounce appears to be over. The latest daily tracking shows that support has fallen all the way back to pre-speech levels.
Forty-five percent (45%) of all voters nationwide now favor the plan while 52% are opposed. A week ago, 44% supported the proposal and 53% were opposed. (see day-by-day numbers).
The latest figures show that 23% Strongly Favor the plan and 41% are Strongly Opposed.
UPDATE: Charlie Rangel said today that Obama’s speech last week made things harder for democrats.
