1. 41% sounds about right.
When you add up conservatives, plus people who are socially liberal but fear "communism", plus all the people deluded by the mainstream media.

Still last time I checked 41% is a minority of the country. Why is the House preparing to repeal something supported by 59% of the population?

4. Must consider how many are already on socialized medicine
here and don't want their services impacted in any way. Greedy, selfish Americans account for much of this number I would say!

5. Sad thing is many people have no idea what Socialized medicine means.
They just know it is bad. I have had older people (who I assume are on Medicare) seems genuinely confused when I question their socialized Medicare.

13. It's known as rule or tyranny by the minority.
We have been suffering from the same here in California. When you demand 60% or two-thirds majority in passing laws, then the minority can throw a chink in process as has happened in our Legislature and the last session of Congress. It also affects the electoral college. The Republicans like it because historically they are a smaller Party than the Democrats, so it gives them an edge in screwing up everything the Democrats try to do for the country.

2. 41% oppose HCR AS IT IS WRITTEN...they want MORE not LESS
That's the bullshit of this poll. More OPPOSE it because it doesn't go far enough, not because it goes too far. But far be it from the Republicans to actually tell the truth. Better for them, with the help of the MSM, to spin their bullshit.

3. +1000
No public option, no health care reform. All you have is Big Insurance taking away a little more of our freedoms.

6. And I'm betting a good portion of that thinks it doesn't go far enough.
Honestly, to listen to right wingers they say 100% are against it.

10. A substantial percentage oppose HC reform because they don't think
it did enough. There was only something like 30% hardcore opposition.

12. So 59% support it?
This isn't a helpful statistic unless you give us the exact question and responses.
