WHOA: 60% Favor Repeal of ObamaCare

Holy Buckets, what happened?! I was just writing about the polls from last week that showed the number of folks who support repealing Obama's economy-killing healthcare reform law is a shrinking majority, down to 52%.

Maybe I wrote too soon?

Sixty percent (60%) of voters nationwide favor repeal of the recently passed health care law, including 49% who Strongly Favor repeal.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 36% oppose repeal. That figure includes 24% who are Strongly Opposed.

Forty-three percent (43%) believe repeal would be good for the nation’s economy. Twenty-seven percent (27%) believe repeal would be bad for the economy, while 20% say it would have no impact.

What changed? This is outside the margin of error, so it's not likely to be just statistical randomness. Voters are further down on ObamaCare on July 1 (the date of this survey) than they were a week earlier.

That's the good news. The bad news is that voters don't actually believe in the dream yet:

Despite the ongoing support for repeal, just 41% believe the law is even somewhat likely to be repealed. Forty-five percent (45%) say repeal is unlikely. In April, however, 51% considered repeal unlikely.

Alright, so there's been progress, but not enough. I bet part of the problem is a lack of confidence in Republicans in Congress. Maybe we can change that in November...
