One week after the House of Representatives passed the health care plan proposed by President Obama and congressional Democrats, 54% of the nation’s likely voters still favor repealing the new law. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that 42% oppose repeal.
Those figures are virtually unchanged from last week. They include 44% who Strongly Favor repeal and 34% who Strongly Oppose it.
Repeal is favored by 84% of Republicans and 59% of unaffiliated voters.
Among white Democrats, 25% favor repeal, but only one percent (1%) of black Democrats share that view.
54% overall, 59% among independents, and even 25% of white Democrats. Tri-partisanship in action. Now we just need to make it quad-partisan by bringing black Democrats on board.
Repeal represents the coalition of the willing, so be willing to do it.
