POLL: 58% Want Obamacare Repealed by American Elephant

Expect these numbers to only increase after the ruling:

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 58% of Likely Voters at least somewhat favor repeal of the health care law, including 47% who Strongly Favor repeal.  Thirty-eight percent (38%) oppose repeal, with 29% who are Strongly Opposed.  (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Support for repeal has ranged from 50% to 63% in weekly tracking since Democrats in Congress passed the law in March of last year.

What was that Obama said a few days ago about the consent of the governed?

Update: Ah, yes:

“…governments must maintain power through consent, not coercion.”

The American people do not consent, Mr. Obama.

55% Want Obamacare Repealed by American Elephant

If you’re anything like me, you’ve been looking for good news since Obama and the  Democrat congress managed to turn their fascist takeover of healthcare into United States law. Here’s some very good news:

55 percent of voters want Obamacare repealed, as do 59% of independents.  That’s millions more than ever voted for Obama in the first place. Even 27% of Democrats want it repealed.

Contrary to Obama’s claims, the only bipartisanship that has been occurring in America since he became president has been bipartisan opposition to his radical socialist agenda.

Between now and November lets work to make those numbers even higher. It is an absolute outrage, and I can think of nothing more un-American than that the tiny minority of Americans who actually supported Obamacare should force the majority of Americans to accept a health care system they don’t want.

Obama Flunking-Out in Two Polls by American Elephant

Surely the nutroots will find out about this soon enough and launch a massive email/twitter/whatever campaign. Undoubtedly, it will be on tomorrow’s White House “progressive” conference call. But for now, a whopping 59% of  respondents to an online MSNBC poll are giving the dear leader a big fat “F” for his performance so far.

Obviously, the staff of MSNBC hasn’t voted yet:

But more importantly, president Obama, and his Treasury Secretary are also receiving failing grades from a Wall Street Journal survey of leading economists:

On average, they gave the president a grade of 59 out of 100, and although there was a broad range of marks, 42% of respondents rated Mr. Obama below 60. Mr. Geithner received an average grade of 51. Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke scored better, with an average 71…

[E]conomists’ main criticism of the Obama team centered on delays in enacting key parts of plans to rescue banks. “They overpromised and underdelivered,” said Stephen Stanley of RBS Greenwich Capital. “Secretary Geithner scheduled a big speech and came out with just a vague blueprint. The uncertainty is hanging over everyone’s head.”…

The economists’ negative ratings mark a turnaround in opinion. In December, before Mr. Obama took office, three-quarters of respondents said the incoming administration’s economic team was better than the departing Bush team. However, Mr. Geithner’s latest marks are lower than the average grade of 57 that former Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson received in January… [read more]

Which provides us with the perfect excuse to try out the nifty new WordPress poll feature* we’ve been dying to take for a spin!

Tell us what you think of the dear leader’s leadership:

*Poll results are at least as scientific as Al Gore’s “consensus” on man-made climate change.
