One poll by right wing gallop? Now that's very impressive, or would be if all the other polling tells a different story. Just like during the election, the REAL poll numbers were ignored and fake rasmussen / gallup polls were sent into the right wing echo chamber and OMG, thurston lost in a landslide.

Since most of the data in post-election polling has offered little beyond a parade of ugly news, here's a glimmer of hope from Gallup:

For the first time in Gallup trends since 2000, a majority of Americans say it is not the federal government's responsibility to make sure all Americans have healthcare coverage. Prior to 2009, a majority always felt the government should ensure healthcare coverage for all, though Americans' views have become more divided in recent years...Republicans, including Republican-leaning independents, are mostly responsible for the drop since 2007 in Americans' support for government...
