Why spend all the money to conduct a poll if you’re not going to report the results?
Oh, maybe this is why:
[A]ccording to polling by CNN, registered voters oppose Obamacare by a margin of 10 points — 52 to 42 percent. Independents like Obamacare even less, opposing it by a margin of 22 points — 57 to 35 percent. Clearly, voters didn’t think they were ratifying Obamacare when they pulled the lever for Obama.
Gee, ya think maybe if those numbers were reversed we’d be hearing more about them?
My guess is that as ObamaCare is slowly implemented, and the public learns more of the grisly details, these numbers will only get worse.
Things are really going to get bad as ObamaCare explodes the cost of everyone’s health care premiums even more than it did last year.
Obviously, one of the reasons the public will only learn the grisly details as ObamaCare is implemented is due to the fact that the media protected Obama by not making those details well known prior to the implementation. Obama also moved the implementation past the 2012 election for this reason.
Doesn’t matter now, though, does it? ObamaCare is the law of the land no matter how many oppose it.
Well played, Obama and media… Well played.
