Rasmussen: Conservative Anger Against Obamacare Is at “Stratospheric Levels”

Pullster Scott Rasmussen told Newsmax this weekend that since the Supreme Court decision conservative anger against Obamacare is at “stratospheric levels.”

Last month Scott Rasmussen said GOP voters were more energized than Democrats. That was before the Obamatax decision.

Newsmax reported:

Conservative interest in the presidential election hit “stratospheric levels” following last week’s Supreme Court ruling upholding Obamacare, noted pollster and author Scott Rasmussen tells Newsmax.TV.

“All that did was energize conservatives,” declared Rasmussen in an exclusive interview on Monday. “The conservative interest in the election was already much higher than that of moderates and liberals. It went up to really stratospheric levels right after the ruling. We don’t know if that will continue or if it’s just a temporary response to the news cycle.”

…More than half of the country — 52 percent of American voters — believe that Obamacare should be repealed.

“That number hasn’t changed much over the past week. In fact, it hasn’t changed much over the past two years,” said Rasmussen, who is the author of the book, “The People’s Money: How Voters Will Balance the Budget and Eliminate the Federal Debt.”

“From the day the law was passed, a majority of American voters have said we want to see it repealed. And there’s really not much that would change that,” he said. “The support has been so consistent.”

Since the healthcare law has been so unpopular among voters, Rasmussen will be watching to see if Democrats go along with a largely symbolic measure to repeal Obamacare in the House.

  • Dittogirl

    They aint seen nothin’ yet! Pissed off?? You betcha! I dont like anyone, and I mean anyone! telling me what to do!

    This Conservative is outraged not just by Obozo’s Deathcare & Taxes. The rule of law is a far bigger issue for me now that the entire machine of the elites in DC and its bureaucrat, media, and wackodemic stooges have revealed themselves as wannabe tyrant statists out to destroy the country and its republic for their own wealth & agrandizement.

    I’m out of the stratosphere angry about Obamataxcare. If the government can punish me by taxing inaction I can be economically forced to do anything – from buy a product to donate to a political party to ensure my town votes for a specific candidate in the next election. I can be taxed if I have too many children, if I weigh too much or if I worship at the wrong church.

  • MamaGriz68

    Um, the anger isn’t going anywhere, and it’s going to keep building until Nov. 6, Mr. Rasmussen. The Dems thought 2010 was bad.

    i swear, they’re doing everything and anything they can on purpose,
    but under false pretenses, once they get the target groups riled up,
    they go after the next group, and this will be the cycle until 11/06/12
    (actually, it’s been the wash, rinse, repeat since Obama WONE, yeah
    right, hope the elites are happy.. really can’t wait until he bites their
    hand again, and you know he will)..

    The searing heat that has knocked out power in DC is an act of GOD . The capital sits in darkness in the wake of this ruling. The SHADOW OF DEATH hangs over the land as a result of Judas Roberts.

    Mitch “World’s Most Boring Man” McConnell gave the game away today. He told an audience that it would be hard to undo ObamaCare.

    Don’t expect the Clueless Party to even try, even if it wins big in November. Congress will throw a few roadblocks to delay implementation, but they’re not going to repeal it.

    This country didn’t get into the mess it’s in because of the Democratic Party only. You can also thank the Clueless Party, not only for being a party of big government, but then for lying about it. The compassionate dope George W. Bush isn’t the only big-government big spender to wrap himself in the rhetoric of limited government. For two years he signed every pork-laden bill that a Republican Congress sent his way. He expanded the federal reach into healthcare and education. He and the lying frauds in Congress used 9/11 to ratchet up hundreds of billions of wasteful spending, all under the guise of homeland security.

    Anyone who wants to believe these frauds are now hankering to repeal ObamaCare and reduce the size of government is delusional.

    Remember: The model for ObamaCare is RomneyCare.

  • Gadfly

    OK, so we’re angry-so what? On the Supreme Court we have a wise Latina smarter than those old white men, a Solicitor General who did not recuse herself and a Conservative Chief Justice who sold us out on Obamacare. Do you really think anything is going to change?

    the VA Republican primary for Senate brought out 5% of eligible voters. George Allen, Jr. defeated Tea Party Captain Jamie Radtke 65% – 25%,
    that is, of the 5% who voted. -any explanations? anybody?

    “The People” will always get what they DESERVE. -which way will it be?

    there are 23 D Senate seats up this fall against only 10 R seats.
    Mathematically, we could have 70 Senate seats, and there is NO REASON why we shouldn’t get 60+ if, if, if, 10,000 Spartans and 30,000 Greeks show up for the Showdown.

    As an addendum to my rant at #11, I was the one who long argued, while so many at this website were in the thrall of Herman Cain and Donald Trump, that Romney was the only guy who had a legitimate chance to win the nomination. He had the money, the organization, the campaigning experience, etc.

    But that doesn’t mean that I think Romney will make a great, or even a good president. His main asset is that he’s not an arrogant subprime grifter, which is what we’re stuck with now. Romney strikes me as a guy who would be overly cautious and overly deferential to the Congress. He’ll sign one bad bill after another. In foreign affairs, who knows? He’s running as if the presidency was a CEO job. The commander-in-chief part seems an afterthought with him, and I don’t see many signs that he’s astute when it comes to geopolitcal matters.

    LARGELY SYMBOLIC! You mental mutant asswipe POS….this nation is being spent into oblivion and NOT in a symbolic manner either! Repeal Obamacare in it’s entirety, along with cutting back ALL entitlement programs!

    People buying tobacco and alcohol with EBT cards? Is this nation INSANE? This nation is about a LOT more than Obamacare – If the November election is all about Obamacare, alone, then the entire nation will be on power blackout shortly. STOP SPENDING MONEY that we don’t have – and start paying our debts.

    It’s either that or America is done and over with.

    Here we go Kato:


    I agree with most of what you say, except I give Romney elbow room for Romneycare. He was the Governor of a very liberal state. There was a state legislature involved and correct me if I’m wrong, they like it. It also should be emphasized rather than dismissed that it’s a state vs federal issue.

    McConnell is a total Debbie Downer.

  • Rose

    HERE IS MY OPEN LETTER TO MITCH McCONNELL – after a note on the article in which he declares, the job of repeal is ~HARD~


    McConnell says Repeal will be hard – UNRAVELLING WON’T BE EASY!
    Wasn’t it PASSED IN ONE FELL SWOOP on One Vote?

    ROSE, July 2, 2012:

    There are people who are Americans who have TRIED to do things FOR AMERICA – like George Washington (George Washington: Bulletproof”), and our War Veterans, and the rescuers of 9/11, almost 200 men at the Alamo on March 6, 1836 – these people TRIED.
    We aren’t going to take LESS than FULL REPEAL, and Public Servants making EVERY effort to RESTORE PUBLIC TRUST in Public Servants because they put the Constitution of the United States of America BACK WHERE IT BELONGS. Whatever else happens – do not stop before ALL the damage INCLUDING OBAMA CARE is fully REPEALED AND NULLIFIED – and all steps AFTER THAT are A REFLECTION of WE THE PEOPLE and NOT OF DIM LYTE MARXIST PROGRAMS!!!!
    Here is a PRIMER for you guys – Davy Crockett: “NOT YOURS TO GIVE!”
    ARE YOU GOING TO BE ASHAMED WHEN YOU COME FACE TO FACE with Todd Beemer in the Next Life???

    So are you too, like Mitch McConnell, going to prove to have to be too ashamed in the after life to be able to meet Todd Beemer and George Washington, and Nathan Hale, and the men of the Alamo, the men on the ARIZONA, the family of John Hancock, and so many others?

    Pull yourself up and cinch that belt up, and get down on your knees and pray, and put on that Full Armor of God, and the Shield of the Soldier, and the Wisdom of Success AND GIT ‘ER DONE!

    You are angry with me? Why?

    I have scratched my butt trying to think of the reason. I lied? I cheated? I stole your money? Ha ha!

    I am the best liar this county has ever had. That is a good thing. And, it should be the very quality that you should grow to expect from your federal government!

    Look, all I want is your money and your medical records. Then I can decide what is Best you your and your kids. Is that too much to ask?

    = = = = = = =

    Read Ann Barnhardt’s post today titled “Toldya. Repub Sen. McConnell has Already Folded”. Then go back and read her post “Surprised? Nope. Solution? Junta. Likely? Nope.” dated June 28th. This woman is ON FIRE. “… the Republic is dead {…} the Constitution is no longer in force, {…} the Rule of Law is dead …”

    She declares: “… Romney is lying to all of you people, swearing that he will repeal ObamaCare, and repeal any mandate. He will do no such thing …”

    THEN she predicts: “… All of these “Republicans” {…} will start referencing the fact that ObamaCare is SCOTUS-approved, and {…} will also start to argue that it would cause “chaos” to repeal it. Day by day, this rhetoric will increase. It will begin on the news channels, then spill over into the faux-conservative blogs {…} And you know what the result will be? Not an iota of ObamaCare will be touched, much less repealed. The republicans want it every bit as much as the democrats. They’re all gunning for that power. They will NEVER turn loose of that power voluntarily. ”

    So, let’s just see if the Progressive-Lite RINOs (= The GOP Establishment types) *do* in fact take this path. We’d sure know who **NOT** to vote for…

    Handing over health care is handing over the power of life and death! Handing over healthcare to insurance companies is an extension of ones self but needs to be watched very, very carefully. Handing over control of healthcare to the government , a government who borrows 40% of each dollar it spends and will not stop spending is a death sentence for far too many.

  • Sail

    Things are so screwed up we need a CEO to get this mess sorted out! We need somebody that has an ounce of business sense. somebody that know federal money is not free money, there is a bottom to the well…. At the very least this man has managed money the current President knows he wants to change things but doesn’t know how because he has never done anything…… And they laughed at Sarah Palin saying she had no experience, pray tell me what experience has the current President had running anything?????? The current President’s experience is showing…… He get a major bill through the congress and it becomes law after the supreme courts says it’s law because it is exactly, what he, the President, swore to the people it wasn’t!

  • Sail

    I hear a lot of people saying Romney is not going to repeal healthcare! OK so then put your vote where your mouth is. Vote for him, you have nothing to lose. You are sure of that fact right? OK good vote for him come on you can do it you know it’s ok ………………
