Rasmussen Poll: 33% Say They’ve Been Personally Hurt by Obamacare

According to a recent Rasmussen poll, 33% of Americans say that they have been personally hurt by Barack Obama’s signature piece of legislation, Obamacare. In contrast, just 14% of all voters now say they personally have been helped by the ACA. This is a rather staggering number when you consider that the Obama administration has (Unconstitutionally) purposely delayed many aspects of the employer mandate and given waivers to businesses and unions until after the upcoming elections.

But I thought you could keep your insurance, doctor and hospital if you liked them, PERIOD?


One-in-three U.S. voters now says his or her health insurance coverage has changed as a result of Obamacare, and the same number say the new national health care law had a negative personal impact on them.

Thirty-three percent (33%) now say their insurance coverage has changed because of the new law, up a point from January  and the highest finding since last July.

Seventy-four percent (74%) of those who have health insurance rate their coverage as good or excellent.

Just 14% of all voters now say they personally have been helped by the law, down from 16% in January. Thirty-three percent (33%) say they have been hurt by the law, up from 29% earlier this year and the highest negative rating since April 2013. Fifty percent (50%) say it has had no impact on them.

71% of Voters Believe It’s Somewhat Likely President Obama or Senior Officials in his Administration Were Aware Before Obamacare was Passed that Health Insurance Costs Would Go Up for Some Americans.” … #You Lie

 71% of Americans believe they were lied to about Obamacare …

From the Washington Examiner via a recent Rasmussen poll, that 71% of  Americans believe that President Obama and his health care team knew well in advance that insurance costs would surge despite his promises they wouldn’t. Also, 40%  want HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to retire or be fired. So not only did they know you could not keep your insurance if you liked it, they also knew the costs would increase as well.


Rasmussen Reports found that 71 percent of voters believe “it’s at least somewhat likely that President Obama or senior officials in his administration were aware long before the law began being implemented that health insurance costs would go up for some Americans.”

Worse for the president: Only 18 percent want Obamacare to move on unchanged, but 43 percent want it repealed and the process started over and another 35 percent want Congress to fix it in a piecemeal fashion.

However, I have to sadly agree with the comments by Debra Heine at Brietbart.com with regards to the apathy and “oh well” mentality that is going on in the United States. We are a government of, by and for the people and ‘We the People” seem more engaged to the celebrity of the day and reality TV.

When the vast majority of American voters can agree they were lied to in order pass a controversial bill on a party line vote that amounts to a takeover of nearly 1/6 of the economy, and a large percent of them say, yeah, so what? – Our country is in deep trouble. According to Rasmussen, 48% of Likely U.S. Voters still approve of  Obama’s job performance. Unbelievable.

America, would you stand the hell up for yourselves and take your liberty, freedoms and country back! Pretend like you actually care. The Founding Fathers are shaking their collective heads at the apathy.

In other polling, Rasmussen finds that 51% believe that the “individual” mandate should be delayed, while 34% say no.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN … 37% Say Zombies Would Do Better Job Than Federal Government Running the Country

Well this as good a poll as any to use on Halloween …

According to a recent Rasmussen poll, 37% of Americans say that a Zombie would do a better job than the current federal government officials that are in Washington, DC. One might say the undead vs. the brain dead. To be honest with you for the most part these days, I do not think we could tell the difference between the two. Actually, how do we know they are not Zombies?  We have yet to see any polling on how vampires, ghosts or ghouls do as compared to federal government.


All in favor of the bill say aye …

It’s not exactly a vote of confidence in the powers that be: A sizable number of Americans think the undead would do a better job than the brain dead in Washington, D.C.

Thirty-seven percent (37%) of American Adults believe the federal government would do a better job than zombies running the country today. But the latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that most Americans don’t share that view, with just as many (37%) who feel zombies would do a better job running the country and another 26% who can’t decide between the two.

Rasmussen Poll: More Americans View Blacks As Racist Than Whites Or Hispanics … Even Blacks Think Blacks are More Racist than Whites

I thought that racism was supposed to go away when Barack Obama was elected president?

The following is a rather eye opening poll from Rasmussen with regards to racism in the United States. The poll states that blacks are more likely to be racist that White or Hispanics, 37% of American adults think that most black Americans are racist, while just 15% consider most white Americans racist, while 18% consider most Hispanics racist. What might be the most interesting aspect of the poll is that a plurality, 31%, think most blacks are racist, while 24% consider most whites racist and 15% view most Hispanics that way. The LEFT wants to smear Rasmussen as right-wing  in order to make claims the the poll is has no merit. However, what would one expect the polling data to be when the liberal MSM and race baiters in the US have all but allowed such “reverse” racism to go unpunished.

We need to look no further than the racially charged murder case of George Zimmerman in the death of Trayvon Martin to see such actions.  Rachel Jeantel took the stand for the prosecution and testified that  Trayvon described the man following him [George Zimmerman] as a “creepy ass cracker”. Jeantel was asked whether that was a racial slur, she said no. Thus, we can see that if such a slur is not considered racial, then such racism is institutionalized within the culture.


Wasn’t Obama supposed to be the post-racial president?

Americans consider blacks more likely to be racist than whites and Hispanics in this country.

Thirty-seven percent (37%) of American Adults think most black Americans are racist, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey. Just 15% consider most white Americans racist, while 18% say the same of most Hispanic Americans. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

There is a huge ideological difference on this topic. Among conservative Americans, 49% consider most blacks racist, and only 12% see most whites that way. Among liberal voters, 27% see most white Americans as racist, and 21% say the same about black Americans.

From a partisan perspective, 49% of Republicans see most black Americans as racist, along with 36% of unaffiliated adults and 29% of Democrats.

Among black Americans, 31% think most blacks are racist, while 24% consider most whites racist and 15% view most Hispanics that way.

Rasmussen Poll: 26% Of Obama’s Supporters View Tea Party As Nation’s Top Terror Threat … Liberalism Really is a Disease

The AMA does not need to made obesity a disease … they need to make Liberalism one.

According to a recent Rasmussen poll, 26% of those who approve of President Barack Obama’s job performance think that the Tea Party is a greater threat to America than radical Muslim. They don’t call these folks “moonbats” for nothing. As for those who actually have a functioning brain and who disapprove of Obama’s performance, 75% consider radical Muslims to be the bigger terrorist threat and just 1% are influenced by the MSM and name the Tea Party. It is rather remarkable that those who are for the US Constitution, limited government and balanced budgets is some how considered worse than those who would kill Americans. So sorry if the Tea Party believes in freedom and liberty. However, this is what happens when a Presidents makes more of an effort to have a war on its own citizens who express their First Amendment rights of Free Speech and a lapdog liberal MSM acts as a presidents propaganda arm to smear his political enemies rather than report the truth. UNREAL.

Must watch VIDEO … Yea, because these folks look and act like terrorists, unreal! (Tennessee Tea Party 4/15/09)

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 51% of Likely U.S. Voters consider radical Muslims to be the bigger threat to the United States today. Thirteen percent (13%) view the Tea Party that way, and another 13% consider other political and religious extremists to be the larger danger. Six percent (6%) point to local militia groups. Two percent (2%) see the Occupy Wall Street movement as the bigger terrorist threat. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

However, among those who approve of the president’s job performance, just 29% see radical Muslims as the bigger threat. Twenty-six percent (26%) say it’s the Tea Party that concerns them most. Among those who Strongly Approve of the president, more fear the Tea Party than radical Muslims.

This is actually quite something. The far LEFT is truly deranged. Sorry, but I strongly oppose Barack Obama, his agenda and pretty much 99.9% of what he believes in, but I do not think the radical LEFT is a greater threat to America than Al-Qaeda. However, after this poll … maybe the radical, far LEFT is more dangerous.

The Daily Caller reminds us that the Tea Party has never committed an act of terror. Too bad the Leftist Occupy movement can’t say the same.

Rasmussen: Barack Obama Job Approval Daily Tracking Poll … Obama 45% Approve, 54% Disapprove

In the latest Rasmussen job approval daily tracking poll, President Barack Obama is well underwater as the multiple scandals that plague his presidency and a continued floundering economy. Only 45% of Americans approve of the job Obama is doing, while 54% disapprove. Including 63% of Independents who disapprove of the job Obama is doing. Honestly, how can 83% of Democrats really approve of the job Obama is doing? That is simply just partisan BS. Obama is mired in multiple scandals with Benghazi, the IRS, AP, James Rosen & Fox News, Fast & Furious, the NSA and the many coming out of the State Department. Add that to a floundering economy, record number of Americans on Food Stamps and disability and a president that has no status in the world to get anything done. We have a lame duck president in Obama who had lost the trust of the American people. Except for partisan hack Democrats who would say BO is doing a good job no matter what.


The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Saturday shows that 45% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Obama’s job performance. Fifty-four percent (54%) now disapprove (see trends).

Eighty-three percent (83%) of Democrats approve, and 87% of Republicans disapprove. Among voters not affiliated with either major party, 35% approve, and 63% disapprove.

RCP have Obama’s average polling job approval at 45.6% Approve and 46.% disapprove.

Americans No Longer Trust Their Government … 57% Fear Government Will Use NSA Data to Harass Political Opponents

Americans have lost trust in their government and believe it is a threat to their individual rights. Our rights are endowed by Our Creator, not government. Don’t ever forget what our Founding Fathers states … “That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government …”

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such  has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. (Declaration of Independence July 4, 1776)


What ever happened to the dream of Our Founding Fathers of a government of, by and for the People? It would appear that those days are gone as Americans now fear the very government that is supposed to be for “We the People”. The continual scandals of the Obama administration bring into play just how big, how out of control and how vindictive the federal government has become.  In a recent Rasmussen poll, 57% of Americans fear the Government will use NSA data to harass political opponents. Why would they feel like that, it’s not as though the IRS willfully and purposely targeted conservative and Tea Party organizations, while they have liberal and progressive groups a free pass. Oh that’s right, they did. Forget the fact that it is most likely Unconstitutional to collect data on all Americans to use at a later date, whether it is for national security or not. The problem is that when there is a situation that can present itself for abuse, it will be compromised. We need to look no further than the IRS scandal that obviously aided Barack Obama in winning reelection by harassing and preventing his opponents from organizing. And despite the fact that Barack Obama has told us that they do not listen in on phone calls, according to another Rasmussen poll, 68% think it is likely that the government is listening to their conversations.

Making matters worse that Americans have lost trust in their government is that 56% of Americans believe that their Government is a threat to their individuals rights. How is this possible that “WE THE PEOPLE” have allowed a government to go rogue? Another 60% say it is likely other agencies targeted Conservatives as well. We have a government that is “Too Big” to succeed. What are the chances that the IRS also perpetrated their illegal acts against conservatives to help Obama and ensure that Obamacare would not be repealed along with the 16,000 news IRS jobs that go along with Obamacare? Hmm, think there is a slight conflict of interest there from the organization that was to implement and enforce Obamacare?

The United States was founded on a belief that governments are created to protect certain unalienable rights. Today, however, more voters than ever view the federal government as a threat to those rights.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 56% of Likely U.S. Voters now consider the federal government a threat to individual rights rather than a protector of those rights. That’s up 10 points from 46% in December.

Rasmussen: Only 6% Rate News Media As Very Trustworthy … Looks Like Congress has Competition

Just when you thought that the US Congress had the lowest poll ratings, along comes America’s views on the main stream media. According to a recent Rasmussen poll, only 6% of those polled think that the media is very trustworthy, while 42% do not trust the news media and  12% believe the news it reports is not trustworthy at all. Before the media comments on the low Congressional approval ratings, they might just want to look in the mirror first.  With the bias that exists in the media today and a liberal media complex that acts more like a propaganda arm of the Obama White House than a concerned  investigative media, is it any wonder why so many do not trust their reporting.

Most voters still get their news from television and consider the news reported by the media generally trustworthy.

Fifty-six percent (56%) of Likely U.S. Voters say they get most of their news from TV, including 32% who get it from cable news networks and 24% who get it from traditional network news. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that another 25% use the Internet as their main source of news, while only 10% still rely on print newspapers. Seven percent (7%) get most of their news from radio. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Fifty-six percent (56%) of all voters regard the news reported by the media as at least somewhat trustworthy, but that includes just six percent who think it is Very Trustworthy. Forty-two percent (42%) don’t trust the news media, with 12% who believe the news it reports is Not At All Trustworthy.  

The PJ Tatler opines, what a sad state of affairs when the two institutions, the media and Congress, that should be the two institutions Americans should rely on most. However, sadly both have failed them. The good news at least is that the American people realize how useless both really are.

57% of Americans Prove to be Envious of Others … Favor Tax Hike On Those Who Make Over $250,000

America, taxing the so-called rich is not a job growth plan nor good for the economy …

According to a recent Rasmussen poll, 57% of Americans think they have a right to steel other people’s money and hard work and call it their own. Fifty-seven percent of Americans think that it is ok to increase taxes on those who make over $250,000. Sadly, this country has become a group of individuals influenced by class warfare, wrapped in ignorance and tied with a ribbon of  envy. These envious people do this knowing that it is not enough to balance the federal budget. Hmm, I wonder how many of these people would be in favor of increasing taxes on all Americans no matter what they make, including the numerous one’s that pay no income taxes? Seriously, if it is as Obama and Biden say “Patriotic” and that there should be shared sacrifice, why do not all Americans have to pay taxes and have skin in the game. These greedy and envious folks are going to be in for a surprise when the bar is lowered to $200K or $100K. They will be screaming bloody murder when the taxes actually affect them.

Most voters favor raising taxes on those who earn more than $250,000 a year but recognize that that won’t be enough to balance the federal budget.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 57% of Likely U.S. Voters favor raising taxes on people who earn more than $250,000 a year. Thirty-five percent (35%) are opposed. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

BTW, who said these politicians were going to pay down the debt with the tax revenue?

Romney Takes Lead in Final Rasmussen Poll …Also Leads in Final Gallup Poll As Well

In the final Rasmussen poll before the 2012 Presidential election, Mitt Romney has taken the lead over Barack Obama 49% to 48%.

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows Mitt Romney attracting support from 49% of voters nationwide, while President Obama earns the vote from 48%. Two percent (1%) prefer some other candidate, and one percent (1%) remains undecided.

Rasmussen Reports will conduct our final tracking poll tonight and release the results early Tuesday morning. Later today, we will issue our final swing state polls including Ohio, Virginia and New Hampshire.

Mitt Romney also leads Obama in the daily Gallup poll, 49% to 48%. . What we are witnessing in the polls is that an incumbent president cannot poll over 50%. If as Gallup is reporting that early voting is breaking for Obama by only 49% to 48%, Obama is in for a long election night. Barack Obama would have needed to have early voting break by a much greater number than 1%.

The polling is over and it’s time to vote. Let’s vote for America, not revenge.
