Carville Poll: Only 1/3 of Voters Support Obama’s Healthcare Plan

A left leaning poll confirms what many of us already knew. The vast majority of voters are hostile to Obama's corporate friendly health care reform plan. A mere 1/3 of voters support the Obama health care debacle.

Single Payer would never have been this difficult. Secure in his bubble, Obama doesn't read blogs or he'd already know this. Amid all the Bush policies that Obama has extended, perhaps he's also signed on to the Bush policy of ignoring polls:

In a survey just published and available on the company’s website, but not yet publicized or reported, the left-leaning public opinion firm Democracy Corps confirms the dangers to Democrats in the 2010 midterm elections.

According to Democracy Corps, likely voters have a sharply negative view of the president’s health-care and economic plans, and a far more favorable view of Republicans than they did a few months ago. Because Democracy Corps was founded by Democrats James Carville and Stanley Greenberg, the firm’s findings have significant influence in national Democratic circles.

. . Fifty-two percent of likely voters described themselves as “cool” on the president’s health-care plan, against just 34 percent were “warm.” When it came to the president’s economic plan, 35 percent were warm against 49 percent cool. The findings are consistent with other national surveys, which show the health-care plan currently under debate to be widely unpopular.
