Support for Health Care Reform
Hasn’t Budged Since July

Just before President Obama gave his speech to Congress last week, 44% of voters nationwide supported his health care reform proposal and 53% were opposed. Today, eight days after the speech and a brief bounce, a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 44% support the health care plan and 53% are opposed. Absolutely no change.

It’s worth noting that support and opposition were at precisely the same levels in mid-July.
In fact, other than brief blips following a nationally televised press conference by the president and his recent speech to Congress, opposition to the plan has been stable at 53% throughout July and August and now into September.

They keep putting lipstick on that pig and still no one wants to dance with it.
