Hmm, no real change from April's poll. 45% think the changes go too far vs. 41% who want at least this amount of health care change. April's numbers were 44% vs. 43%.

Yeah, I was just gonna say.. This nationwide poll is pretty good, but that MO poll from two days ago had a margin of error of zero. Impressive!

That Missouri "poll" also had double the amount of Republicans vote. These polls and other polls like it mean nothing. If the government always governed on polls our country would be in the shits.

The law hasn't even gone into effect yet so who really knows if people will like it or not. One thing that people don't realize is that many people don't like the idea of change, and this law will change a good amount of things for people. With HCR not even in effect yet, people are definitely going to be more skeptical, but I would be willing to bet that when HCR has been in effect for a couple of years, there will be a lot more favorable ratings toward it. Also, many people's opinions have been shaped by some pretty good PR from the people that oppose HCR. It's pretty easy to attack legislation and come up with spotty facts about it that an uninformed general population will believe.

Yes, Americans never grow up. They change their mind like 12 year olds on these issues. You remember how popular the Public option was? It probably would have been implemented ASAP. The HCR package passed was a lot of talk and your correct people haven't seen the direct results yet.

I hate special elections other than on election day unless it is for a primary, or if someone has died or resigned like the passing of Ted Kennedy.

Turnout is just really bad, and I think if a state is going to do contreversial ballot questions, do it on election day. Didn't Missouri have a medical stem cell ballot question regarding a bio-tech firm creating jobs and moving to the state?

Missouri was voting on only a small portion of the health care bill- the most controversial part that requires every one to have health care or pay a penalty. That really has nothing to do with being for against the health care changes as a whole.
