Florida voters: 'Bad idea' to challenge federal health care law - On Politics: Covering the US Congress, Governors, and the 2010 Election - USATODAY.com
A clear majority of Florida voters -- 54% -- believe it was a "bad idea" for state Attorney General Bill McCollum to file suit to challenge the federal health care law, a new Quinnipiac University Poll shows. Only 40% think it was a "good idea."
The issue could hurt McCollum's campaign for governor, the poll also showed. A plurality of voters -- 38% to 28% -- say the lawsuit makes them "less likely" to support his gubernatorial bid.
