Rasmussen: Support for ObamaCare Crashes Down to Pre-Speech Levels
More Cowbell!: Gallup's Poll of Adults Confirms

Bounce gone.

Following President Obama’s speech to Congress last week, support for his health care reform plan increased steadily to a peak of 51% yesterday. However, the bounce appears to be over. The latest daily tracking shows that support has fallen all the way back to pre-speech levels. Forty-five percent (45%) of all voters nationwide now favor the plan while 52% are opposed. A week ago, 44% supported the proposal and 53% were opposed.

The latest figures show that 23% Strongly Favor the plan and 41% are Strongly Opposed. In late August, 23% were strongly in favor of the plan and 43% were strongly opposed.

This tracks with the ABC/WaPo poll, which found no gain for Obama. (If you're keeping track: the conservative rigged poll Rasmussen showed him with a gain, at least for a few days, while the honest unbiased straight-shooting ABCNews/WaPo poll never showed a gain at all.)

That WaPo poll finds that 39% support him on the deficit... which proves that 33% of the country are morons. (Only 33% because the WaPo poll is skewed.)

Gallup Confirms: Gallup's poll of adults, which, to be a broken record, skews strongly in favor of liberals/Democrats, shows a "steep climb" for Obama, with the country evenly divided (statistically) with 50% urging their Congressman to support the plan and 47% urging their Congressman to vote against it.

Do a small amount of mental adjustment on that adults figure and you pretty much have Rasmussen's figure for likely voters.

Oh-- and in the sidebar there, you can see his approval on health care specifically is at 43% -- even lower when you adjust for the poll's skewing sample type.

Gallup's poll of adults continues to show Obama with an unlikely 54% approval rate, but even they find disapproval now at 43% overall, a high for his presidency.

Thanks to AHFF Geoff for that.

The previous poll showing a spike in support for ObamaCare was, as they say, just a snapshot in time, now faded and lost.

Speaking of snapshots (see what I did there?), here's "Photograph" by Def Leppard... with Taylor Swift, the country singer ingenue bigfooted by the ridiculous drunken clown Kanye West.

Here's the original, if you prefer. Cowbell much more prominent.
