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.
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…More than half of the country — 52 percent of American voters — believe that Obamacare should be repealed.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“From the day the law was passed, a majority of American voters have said we want to see it repealed.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.
