Americans' Zeal For Obamacare Repeal Burns On

Posted: Nov 30, 2010 8:33 AM
Last week, McClatchy released a poll purporting to show an uptick in public support for Obamacare.  Yeah, not so much.  In addition to the ultimate poll on November 2, Rasmussen has published a new batch of numbers on the subject.  The verdict? Americans' enthusiasm for ridding the republic of this wretched law remains as robust as ever:

Overall, 58% favor repeal and 37% are opposed. From the beginning, those who favor repeal feel more strongly about it. Forty-six percent (46%) Strongly Favor repeal and 29% are Strongly Opposed.

Indeed, voters now expect repeal, a fact that ought not escape the attention of Congressional Republicans:

Nearly half of Likely U.S. Voters (47%) continue to believe that repeal of the health care law passed earlier this year is at least somewhat likely.  The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 39% think repeal is unlikely while 14% are not sure.

Why the enduring zeal for repeal?  Just count the reasons.
