    Just 41% of voters nationwide now favor the health care reform proposed by President Obama and congressional Democrats. That’s down two points from a week ago and the lowest level of support yet measured...

    Intensity has been with the opposition from the beginning of the public debate. Currently, among all voters 23% Strongly Favor the legislative effort and 43% are Strongly Opposed.

    WHO HAS BETTER IDEAS FOR HEALTH CARE REFORM?
    9/2009 8/2009 7/2009
    President Obama 52% 50% 55%
    Republicans 27 23 26
    Neither (vol.) 11 13 7
    President Obama also receives more credit than Republicans in Congress for trying to reach across the aisle to achieve health care reform. 60% of Americans say that the president is trying to work with Republicans, but just half as many say the Republicans are trying to work with the president. 61% say the Republicans are not trying to do this, up from 51% in July.
    WHO IS TRYING FOR BIPARTISANSHIP ON HEALTH CARE?
    Yes No
    Obama is trying 60% 32
    Republicans are trying 30% 61
    The public sees both parties in Congress as having political motivations for their stance on President Obama’s plans for health care reform. 64% say that Republicans are opposed to these changes for political reasons, and 27% say it is because they think the proposed reforms would be bad for the country. A smaller majority, 53%, think Democrats support the president’s plans for political reasons, while 36% think they do so because the reforms would be good for the country.

    What polls tell us is that the public is schizophrenic. On the one hand, they tell pollsters that the Republicans are not negotiating in good faith on the bill. On the other hand, they tell pollsters they want a bill with bipartisan support.

    Hopey Changey and the Socialists have simply blown it on this health care issue. Instead of focusing on what the majority of Americans already agree on as far as health care reform goes,they have instead tried to force way too much way too fast. "Buy Health Insurance or go to Jail?" Just one example of their forcing something on the people that they clearly don't want. Another big blunder by Hopey Changey was trying to do everything all at once with a mammoth piece of legislation which most in Congress wont ever even read. They should just take this massive legislation apart and address each reform issue on an individual basis. Just address each issue with smaller & individual pieces of legislation rather than this mammoth boondoggle legislation. They just need to slow down and do it right. Despite what some politicians keep screeching,we are not in a "Crisis" or "Emergency." Quit the fear mongering and slow down to get it right. Most Americans agree that there are problems with health care so they need to just start with the things that most Americans agree on and then work their way down the list. Just a thought anyway.

    Would you favor or oppose the government offering everyone a government-administered health insurance plan -- something like the Medicare coverage that people 65 and older get -- that would compete with private health insurance plans?"


    Favor 65% Oppose 26% Unsure 9%
