As those of us affiliated with the Tea Party take to the streets today to protest Obama’s big government policies, our fellow Americans are registering their disapproval in a different way, by shifting their support to Republican presidential candidates and indicating their opposition to the Democrat’s signature initiative.

With the AP poll (one which tends to favor the Democrats) showing, 50 percent of Americans now opposing the Democrats’ health care bill, “the most negative measure all year,” Mary Katharine Ham observes:
Democrats have also lost long-time edges in party approval and trust on the economy. Phil Klein at the American Spectator notes this is the “8th straight national poll showing opposition to ObamaCare at 50% or higher.”
