Early polls give Obama a boost in health-care debate

Rasmussen reports a 10-point improvement since March 20 for President Obama in its unique and controversial “presidential approval index.” Its more standard approval/disapproval numbers are at 48/52, representing a five-point bump for Obama in recent days.

Gallup’s lastest three-day tracking numbers, just out, put Obama’s job approval numbers at 51-43, a five-point jump in the past week. A separate Gallup poll released yesterday found that 49 percent of Americans believe passage of health care reform was a good thing, while 40 percent say it was a bad thing.

However, those numbers are better than reported in other polls. CBS queried 649 adults last week on health care, then reinterviewed the same population a week later. It too found that support had jumped, although a plurality still opposed the bill:

“From what you’ve heard or read, do you approve or disapprove of the current health care reform bill?”

After vote:
Approve 42 percent/ Disapprove 46 percent

Before vote:
Approve 37 percent/ Disapprove 48 percent

Gallup also has compared public sentiment on how Obama, congressional Democrats and congressional Republicans have handled themselves on health care. It found:

r5zf21swb0oxw03jp_0g7w

The question, of course, is whether this is the start of a longer term uptick for Obama and the Democrats as attention shifts away from process to the legislation itself, or whether this bump is temporary. I don’t claim to have a read on that, but I do believe that in the weeks and months ahead, health care will recede in political relevance as other issues elbow their way to the forefront. The American voter does not have a long attention span.

“From the students’ point of view, it’s going to cost you $1,700 to $1,800 more to pay your student loan off, and all the money goes to the federal government. At the end of the day, they took the student loan business over to generate income for the federal government and they’ve applied it to paying for this health care bill.”

If true, the “I don’t have any give me yours” student group will surely be ticked.

This is off topic, but I didn’t start it Uncle Jay. So the extra goes to the government, why are you not complaining about who will foot the bill for defaults?

The Gallup poll also asked the question: Who do you think will benefit from healthcare reform? and who won’t benefit. The majority opinion was that uninsured and low income people will benefit while all others will experience a negative impact. As one well known politician once said: “you can put lipstick on a pig but you still have a pig” The majority of America see this legislation as a pig.

from Rasmussen.

Seventy-two percent (72%) of Republicans and 58% of voters not affiliated with either major party favor such lawsuits. Sixty-five percent (65%) of Democrats are opposed. This suggests that filing a suit would be popular in Republican leaning and toss-up states but not in strong Democratic states.

Sixty-two percent (62%) of Mainstream voters think state lawsuits challenging the federal requirement are a good idea. Seventy-nine percent (79%) of the Political Class disagree.

Mainstream Americans tend to trust the wisdom of the crowd more than their political leaders and are skeptical of both big government and big business (see crosstabs). While Republicans and unaffiliated voters are more likely to hold Mainstream views than Democrats, a majority of those in the president’s party (51%) hold such views.

Only four percent (4%) now support the Political Class. These voters tend to trust political leaders more than the public at large and are far less skeptical about government.

When leaners are included, 81% are in the Mainstream category, and 12% support the Political Class.

The grassroots are getting strong. The progressive weeds are dying.

Another poll, CBS, yesterday has a reversal..49 percent say that passing the bill was a good thing, and 40 percent say it was not a good thing

But better, the Republicans are now scrambling to take credit for the bill, suggesting that they always really supported it:

Grassley: Look How Great This Health Care Bill Is
March 24, 2010, 12:58PM

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) has long been a vocal critic of the Democrat’s health reform efforts, but today he started taking credit for some provisions of the bill, and talking up his own role in crafting the legislation.

In a release sent out by his staff to reporters today, Grassley says the bill will “hold tax-exempt hospitals accountable for the federal tax benefits they receive” thanks to his work.

The full text of his release is after the jump.

Grassley has been among the most vocal opponents of Democratic reform over the past year, but he’s also known as one of the biggest flip-floppers on the issue.

At the start of the process, Grassley was expected to be among those Senators working to craft a bipartisan bill. But it wasn’t long before he abandoned that effort, and helped to start the “death panel” meme heard at town halls across the country throughout last summer.

Poll: Most Think Passing Health Reform Was A Good Idea
March 23, 2010, 3:01PM

A new Gallup poll set to appear in tomorrow’s USA Today shows public opinion is turning around on Democratic health care reform efforts now that the bill has reached final passage.

A plurality of voters surveyed in the poll, 49%, said passing the bill was “a good thing” as opposed to just 40% who said the passage of the reform bill was bad for the country.

There’s more good news for Democrats worried about their election chances after passing the bill found in the poll. Most respondents said they had positive feelings about the bill’s passage, and 48% — which USA Today reports is the “largest single group” in the poll — called the bill “a good first step” and should actually be followed by more reform efforts.

Should the poll live up to the paper’s preview of it, it would be something of a coup for Democrats. Conventional wisdom has held that passage of reform was a political win for the Republicans, who could run hard against a bill that past polls said most people either didn’t want to didn’t understand.

“Should these people wait as well…”

The earth is going to do what the earth is going to do. So called “man made” global warming is but an infintesimal fraction of natural occurences.

When the big one hits CA, there isn’t much they will be able to do about it. It is what it is.

Islands rise and islands fall – been happening for millions of years.

Speaking of public opinion- it’s nearly 4pm, is Saxby still on the Hill?

Jackie, since I never said it wasn’t true, you have little to complain about. Bone up on your reading comprehension skills and stop trying to look at everything as a victim.

He was a means to and end for these (and I use the word laughingly) people. Most of the elected officials (can’t call them representatives, can we?) there probably didn’t even know his name, and in about 6 months time they won’t even remember him.

Prop.

And they’ll just move onto the next prop to continue their drive to control the people, just like that senile nut job from Michigan, John Dingle, wants to do.

But, but, what about the impact of the gravitational force from alpha centauri… .

I couldn’t find anything about the status of our Jewish friends under Sharia law.

I don’t think there is one.

And AmVet, we also know that the study you libs love to quote about over 42,000 deaths because people don’t have health insurance was found to be seriously flawed, don’t we?

Kinda like the “science” of man-made global warming. You libs just love things that can’t be proven.

Ah, TaxCheat is back with more comments that don’t have anything to do with informed debate.

Color me shocked.

@Dave R

My reading comprehension is fine, the import of your statement indicates the young man is nothing more than a prop as his story may not be true.

It is easy to complain about how many so-called conservatives complain about the legislative process, yet, complain when the outcome is not in their favor.
