Rasmussen: 53% Now Oppose Congressional Health Reform

Up eight points since late June.

The health care reform legislation working its way through Congress has lost support over the past month. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that 44% of U.S. voters are at least somewhat in favor of the reform effort while 53% are at least somewhat opposed.

Today’s 44% level of support is down from 46% two weeks ago, and 50% in late June.

Opposition has grown from 45% in late June to 49% two weeks ago and 53% today.

As in earlier surveys, those with strong opinions are more likely to oppose the plan rather than support it. The current numbers: 24% strongly favor and 37% strongly oppose.

Reading further into the numbers is a stat that must have the White House quaking.  60% of Independents are opposed.

There is a huge partisan divide on the health care plan. Sixty-eight percent (68%) of Democrats favor it. However, the plan is opposed by 80% of Republicans and 60% of those not affiliated with either major party.

Keep up the pressure…Melt the phones

  1. MSNBC will spin it a million ways to make Obama look good. the more I learn about Obama, the less I care for him and the more I realize how unqualified he is to be president.
