41% Favor Obamacare; 56% Oppose — Dems Plan to Ram It Through Anyway
A majority of voters still oppose Barack Obama’s plan to nationalize the health care industry.
Voters still strongly oppose the health care reform plan proposed by President Obama and congressional Democrats and think Congress should focus instead on smaller bills that address problems individually rather than a comprehensive plan.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 41% of voters favor the proposed health care plan, while 56% oppose it. Those figures include 45% who strongly oppose the plan and just 23% who strongly favor it.
Support for and opposition to the plan are at the same levels they’ve been at since just after Thanksgiving.
Democrats continue to strongly support the health care plan much while it is opposed by Republicans and voters not affiliated with either major party. Seventy percent (70%) of the Political Class strongly favor the plan, while 57% of Mainstream voters strongly oppose it.
The president’s latest proposal still does not include GOP reforms.
