Sarah Kliff reports on the latest polling on health care reform:
The Quinnipiac polls, conducted in three states across the past month, all find likely voters to have complex and contradictory views on these repeal lawsuits as well as health care reform itself.
By a slight majority, likely voters tend to oppose the health care reform law. But they also tend to oppose the repeal lawsuits as a “bad idea” that would, for a sizeable portion of voters, make them “less likely” to support a given candidate. In short, voters simultaneously don’t want to health care reform but don’t want to challenge it either.
So basically, people oppose health care reform and also oppose getting rid of it. This poll tells politicians that they should remain very still, do nothing, and maybe then people won’t be upset at them. Great way to run a country.
