    Voters are reacting in broadly negative ways to the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold the legislation known as Obamacare, a new Newsweek/Daily Beast poll finds, with a majority disapproving of the ruling, fearing health-care costs and taxes will rise, and preferring Mitt Romney to President Obama on the issue.

    At the same time, voters scored the ruling a short-term political win for the president by a huge margin.

    Overall, 50 percent of those polled said they disapprove of the court’s 5–4 decision, while 45 percent said they support it. Consistently, a majority of voters said that they oppose the individual mandate (53 percent); believe taxes will increase (52 percent); believe their personal health-care costs will increase (56 percent); and disapprove of Obama’s handling of health care in general (58 percent). Only 24 percent of those polled said that they believe the ruling will make the country better off.

    New Poll: Voters Dislike Supreme Court

    Not that it matters to me because justices don't vote to be popular....unless you listen to Charles Krautwhatever....who think Roberts only did this to preserve the integrity of the court (and if he did...boy did he blow that one).

    However, it does have some thought provoking information with regards to how people might vote come November.

    Romney needs to ram this up Obama/Axelrod/Jarrett's asses.

    If it got to 50% in a Newsweak poll, you gotta know that it's bad news.

    I'm afraid that the only way this kind of information is useful now is in determining mood of the voters coming into the election.

    100% of the country could disapprove of the ruling, and that will not stop it from being a law.

    It is rather early after the decision to BE polling, the decision is not a one page note. the news reports are , many will not understand exactly how the Court ruled for weeks. even I have yet to read the entire decision.

    Romney supports all of the benefits that ObamaCare provides - he just doesn't think anyone should have to pay for it.

    Bet if anything shows up in the polls next week, it will be a slight uptick for the President.

    Absolutely true.

    And that is the point. Most of the pundits are now saying this election is about Obamacare. Essentially, it has been handed back to the legislature.

    Now the fun begins.

    Certainly does. We get to listen to you 'Conservatives' tell us what a great thing it is to have 750,000 families a year go bankrupt because of medical bills. And the rate in other industrial nations is zero.

    We get to listen to you 'Conservatives' state how much cheaper it is to have people visit the emergency room than have preventive care.

    And, most of all, we get to listen to you 'Conservatives' chant "Let him die, let him die".

    Hmmm....... And what was the position of most of the 'Conservatives' here prior to the decision being handed down? Seems I remember just an awful lot of early celebrating.

    So, let us see what next week brings:badgrin:
