More bad polling number for Obama and Obamacare …
Not only are most Americans against Congress passing government run health care, according to a recent Gallup poll, Barack Obama gets poor marks in his handling of Obamacare. Presently, 49% of Americans are against Congress passing health care legislation, while 44% say they would advocate a vote in favor of the bill.
Despite every effort of partisan Democrats, Barack Obama and the MSM, Americans continue to show that they oppose Obamacare. The end result is not only health care opposition, but also Obama’s job approval numbers have taken a hit as well. News Busters points out that the opposition numbers have been staggering about-face in less than two months. Most glaring with these poll numbers is how Independents oppose Obama.
“Independents oppose passage of a bill by 53% to 37%.”
Republicans are nearly unanimous in their views of Obama’s work on healthcare, with 89% disapproving and 6% approving. Independents are nearly twice as likely to disapprove (58%) as to approve (33%).
The Gallup poll finds that be 53% to 40% that Americans disapprove of how President Barack Obama has handled health care. This is even more negative that September 2009 where Americans disapproved of Obama’s job handling health care 52% to 43%.
Over time the support for health care passage among political parties has gone down since early October 2009 highs.
Support among all three party groups has declined since the early October high — falling by 6 points among Democrats, 8 among independents, and 12 among Republicans. However, Democratic support recovered somewhat from early November (71%) to late November (76%).
The bottom line from Gallup says a mouth full. The more Congress and Obama put forth their message of health care so-called reform to the American people, the more they are in opposition of it. The trend is to oppose Obamacare the more details “We the People” learn. Is it any wonder why Obama and Democrats looked to pass this legislation ASAP before any one knew what it was about?
Despite the considerable efforts of Congress and the president to pass health insurance reform, the public remains reluctant to endorse that goal. Over the past month, Gallup has found more Americans opposed to than in favor of healthcare legislation, though at least one in five say they have not made up their minds. Proportionately more independents (27%) and Democrats (24%) than Republicans (14%) are undecided, which at least improves the odds that legislation could wind up getting majority public backing. But the recent trend has been in the opposite direction, with opposition growing.
Hot Air makes an interesting, yet obvious comment regarding to contact your Congressmen and let your self be heard on this issue. However, according to these poll numbers politicians are going against the will of the people.
Are our elected representatives listening? They’ll listen a year from now, but if these numbers are any indication, that will be far too late.
