    Wouldn't be so sure. I don't think we'll see many Republican crossovers with this vote:

    I'm not so sure. Among likely voters 53% now oppose Congressional health care reform, and only 44% support it.

    And as Obama has taken a more prominent role in the debate, among likely voters his approval ratings are negative for the first time. 49% approve and 51% disapprove. Instead of Obama bringing support for the health system overhaul up, it seems the issue has brought his ratings down.

    No problem ... Democrats don't need the republics to pass it.
