Radical Fringe: Only 34% Have "Overwhelming Love" of ObamaCare; Rest are Mezza-Mezza on It or Downright Hostile

It's sot of disturbing to have to report this, but...

Fifty-seven percent (57%) of voters nationwide say that it would be better to pass no health care reform bill this year instead of passing the plan currently being considered by Congress. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 34% think that passing that bill would be better.

Middle-income voters are more likely than others to say that passing no legislation is the better option.

One reason for this is that most Americans now believe they will be worse off if reform passes. Fifty-four percent (54%) hold that view while just 25% believe they would be better off.

I wonder if Chris Matthews believes that 57% of Americans are fringey shouters.

I also wonder if he's upset that, when asking this question, Rasmussen did not show pictures of ice-cream-covered ponies to illustrate the ObamaCare position.

Ed finds some interesting stuff about people's desire to pass this monstrosity or "start over."

One interesting demographic, new to this poll, is that of Obama’s support categories. Those who “strongly approve” of Obama’s job performance support passage over starting over by an 82/7 split. However, among those who “somewhat approve,” that number drops to 52/30, while the Not Sure category splits 0/95 — and the disapproval categories speak for themselves. Only the Obama True Believers and the political class seem to be enthusiastic about this bill, which really is a redundancy anyway. But it shows that Olbermann, Dean, and others are in a very small minority of thought in this category, at least so far.
