Aren't The Politicians Watching The Polls?

Healthcare: At The Best 50% Approval, Now 38%


Nothing means more to politicians than the polls. Polls are the lifeblood that let them know what they should be for, what they should be against and what they should stay away from. If some action is in the best interest of national security, but the polls say that public opinion is against it, most, not all, politicians will be swayed. This, despite the fact that popular opinion is not a reliable gauge of right and wrong, particularly when it comes down to facts that only politicians may be privy to.

That said, Democrat representatives should take a hard look at the series of polling data below from Rasmussen, which clearly indicates the steadily declining view of the American public regarding the healthcare reform that has become the focal point of the Obama administration. A word of advice to the Democrats might be to not allow the President to put an end to their political ambitions with legislation that is not only wrong for the country, but their careers as well.

Don't let this be the one time you become thinkers independent of the polls. Stick to your guns and vote career. This time though, it would be consistent with the best interests of the country.

Public View Of The President's Healthcare Plan? Yay Or Nay For The Democrats?

  3. LOL. Fail troll is fail.

    I did a similar post a couple days ago, and linked it on Digg. Most comments were about Rasmussen being biased, even though Gallup has similar, yet not as steep numbers that show that the majority (razor thin) does not want any government involvement in health care.

    If the polls favor them, they're gospel, if they don't they're biased. They just want to stay in their unreality bubble.
