More bad news for Democrats … one week later and the people hate it even more.
We were told by President Barack Hussein Obama that he and the Democrats passed Obamacare for We the People. We were then told that once the bill was passed, we the peasants would learn to like the sweeping government take over of health care.
Exactly, what party about the word “NO” does President Obama, Speaker Pelosi, Majority leader Reid and the rest of the Democrats not get? NO MEANS NO!
In a recent Mason-Dixon Polling & Research poll in FL taken after the Obamacare bill was signed into law, 54% are now against this health care reform take over, while only 34% support the new law.
Florida voters dislike the new healthcare law so much that President Barack Obama and the state’s top Democrat, U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, are paying a hefty political price, according to a new survey and analysis by Mason-Dixon Polling & Research.
Only 34 percent of Florida voters support the new law while 54 percent are against it, according to the poll. Opposition is significantly strong among two crucial blocs: those older than 65 and voters with no party affiliation. Seniors disfavor the bill by a 65-25 percent margin, while independents oppose the law 62-34.
The poll, conducted last week, is the first to be taken in Florida since Obama signed the healthcare reform bill into law.
The polls in FL are even more opposed than the national average.
But wait Florida, we were told that the passage of the Obama health care bill was done for you and after they cram it down your thraot and you choke on it a while, you will learn to like it. A note to Obama, Pelosi, Reid et all, I do not think that the Sunshine state got your memo or believe your spin.
Obama is not on the ballot so-to-speak this Fall election; however, he might as well be. The FL US Senate Republican primary between Rubio and Crist is a referandum on Gov. Crists’ close ties and support of Obama’s $787 stimulus package. Which can explain why Rubio has a 22% lead. Seriously, how bad off are you as a Republican candidate when you are being linked to Barack Obama?
How does this bode for Obama and Democrats in Florida? Democrat Senator Bill Nelson is up for reelection in 2012 along with Barack Obama. The key swing state of Florida would appear to be swinging to the side of the GOP. Nelson’s popularity has fallen 18 points since his re-election in 2006, dropping to 36% overall.
Because Florida is such a crucial swing state with so many seniors, Nelson’s troubles are a shot across the bow for Democrats everywhere, Coker said. The poll shows Nelson would lose to Republicans in theoretical match-ups against former Gov. Jeb Bush, Gov. Charlie Crist and his current Senate opponent Marco Rubio.
“If Bill Nelson’s getting hurt by this, you can imagine what damage there is to other Democrats across the country,” Coker said.
Thus, what does not get handled in the 2010 midterm elections by the voters will be carried over until 2012. If Democrats think the voters will forget the treachery they have done, they are sorely mistaken.
But as Democrats spin, the health care debate will help the Donkey Party in 2010. Sure it will.
