New polling data from the Pew Center suggests that support for Obama's health care plan is falling across the board. Pew compared current public opinion on health care with data from when Clinton first attempted health care reform in 1993.
"But there is less support for completely rebuilding the health care system than there was during the early stage of the Clinton administration’s unsuccessful effort to revamp health care. In April 1993, a majority of Americans (55%) said the health care system needed to be completely rebuilt. As discussion of Clinton’s proposals progressed, support for completely rebuilding the health care system declined. By June 1994, just 37% said the health care system needed to be completely rebuilt. Support for a complete rebuilding of the health care system is lower than in early 1993 among all partisan groups."
