Glenn Reynolds reports that ObamaCare Unpopularity Jumps By 9 Points. “Fifty percent of Americans have unfavorable views of the law, according to a joint survey by the Kaiser Family Foundation and the Harvard School of Public Health. Opposition to the law jumped 9 percentage points from last month and is the highest since April, when Kaiser began asking the question every month.”
Looks like Democratic efforts to rebrand the bill didn’t pan out.
Even if Obama pivots to the center, come November 2012, he’ll still have this albatross hanging around his neck. As the Baseball Crank reminds us, “As unpopular as the Clinton Administration’s health care plan was, it wasn’t a major issue in the 1996 campaign because it had failed and, with Republicans controlling both Houses of Congress, it wasn’t coming back.” (Via Instapundit.)
