I know -- Congress doesn't care. Yet.
For the second straight day, the update shows the highest level of Strong Disapproval yet recorded for this President. That negative rating had never topped 42% before yesterday. However, it has risen dramatically since the Senate found 60 votes to move forward with the proposed health care reform legislation. Most voters (55%) oppose the health care legislation and senior citizens are even more likely than younger voters to dislike the plan.Ed Morrissey points out that strong disapproval now exceeds overall approval, 46% to 44% among likely voters.
And the Quinnipiac poll finds a very strong distaste for ObamaCare, and an even stronger aversion for taxpayer-funded abortions:
As the Senate prepares to vote on health care reform, American voters "mostly disapprove" of the plan 53 - 36 percent and disapprove 56 - 38 percent of President Barack Obama's handling of the health care issue, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.It's hard to argue with Michael Steele's assessment of Congress's attitude toward its constituents.
Voters also oppose 72 - 23 percent using any public money in the health care overhaul to pay for abortions, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University poll finds.
