Poll: Obama loses ground on health care – White House-

WASHINGTON – Despite his public-relations blitz over the past two weeks to promote his plans to reform the nation’s health-care system — including holding two town halls on Wednesday — President Barack Obama has lost ground on this issue with the American public, according to the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.

This says “despite” his pr blitz. I think it is because of it. The more people are forced to pay attention to what Obama intends for their health care, the less they like it – and him. There is going to be no health care initiative up for a vote before September. That gives those of us who want Obama to fail at least a month to get the word out, rally the troops, petition our representatives, and make sure these various monstrosities are DOA when Congress reconvenes.

And if Obama’s health care scam goes down, the rest of his wretched socialist agenda is suddenly on life support.

I’ll be addressing this more strenuously in the next few days.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. I rather think that these polls are more accurate and even worse for the Won.

    Overall, 49% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the President’s performance. That figure is down two points over the past week and six points over the past month. Fifty percent (50%) now disapprove.

    The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 47% are in favor of the reform effort proposed by President Obama and congressional Democrats while 49% are opposed. Those figures include 25% who Strongly Favor the plans and 41% who are Strongly Opposed.

    It might be dead before September.

  2. I’m aware that the presidential approval poll combines approve, strongly approve and somewhat approve, and vice versa, but the normal wishywashy (no opinion) percentage of 4-5% is virtually absent. That’s rather remarkable in itself. Even the apathetic among us are paying attention!
