Healthcare general public approval changes?

Wow!……I’ll bet this makes every media outlet!……

This is not good news for the GOP….and if poll numbers continue like this across the board…Obama will have gotten over the hump and dragged his fellow democrats with him…..I have mentioned that I thought the worst part of the Healthcare dilemma was the drama BEFORE the bill’s passage and that the ‘Scott Brown’ effect and all the other stuff would go away after the actual bill was done….

These numbers are NOT good for Republicans at all…who may be digging themselves into a hole this fall because the American public may like the Healthcare Bill after all……

A poll released Tuesday shows that a plurality of the public supports the healthcare reform bill President Barack Obama signed into law earlier in the day.

49 percent of respondents in the latest USA Today/Gallup poll said that the law is a “good thing” as opposed to a bad thing and 40 percent answered to the contrary.

The results of the survey represents a significant turnaround for the legislation, which had suffered from widespread unpopularity in other polling before the House passed the overhaul Sunday night.

Individual elements of the measure had polled well, but overall, the measure was non rated highly.

Despite the turnaround in the polls, Republicans and Democrats remain divided over the measure, which passed through both chambers of Congress without a single Republican vote on the final product.

President Obama's poll numbers aren't bad…..

USA Today does a piece on the historical context on President Obama’s poll numbers…issues that he faces…his troubles at home (stay home for a while Mr. President)…and what popularity is useful for……

The bottom line is…comparison’s to Ronald Reagan are actually fair….and he was a very popular guy in his day……(not to me, but who cares, right?)

Note: Daily tracking polls are useless…monthly ones are better for trends…….
