Opponents of the new Health Care Reform legislation, cite polls that suggest that 'the majority' of Americans are against the bill. These of course were polls that were taken before the bill was signed Tuesday. After the signing, a new poll...
"Only hours after the president signed health care reform legislation into law on Tuesday, the immediate political benefits for the Democratic Party are already coming into focus."
"According to a Gallup/USA Today poll conducted the day after health care legislation passed the House of Representatives, 49 percent of the respondents think the passage of reform is a "good thing," compared to the 40 percent who think it is bad. The numbers are a welcome relief for a party and a presidency that had been bleeding popular support over the course of the past six months."
"Democrats didn't just get a health-care-related boost in the realm of public opinion. The Democratic National Committee reported raising more than $1 million in donations on Tuesday even without making a direct ask. The money is expected to pour in for other campaign committees as well."
So now, if the majority of Americans are for the legislation, does this mean the moaning and crying will end?
