Health Care Law Repeal - #2568 - AP Erroneously Reports That 'Opposition' to Obamacare is Easing - The Weekly Standard (2) AUDIO: Rush Explains AP Obamacare Poll - The Right Scoop (3) Poll: Rasmussen Reports Health Care Law Repeal Support Still High - Rasmussen


A widely reprinted AP story, based on a recent AP/GfK poll, is entitled, "Opposition to health care law eases." Don't believe it. What has eased isn't the level of opposition to Obamacare, but rather the level of effort that AP/GfK has made to ensure that its polling sample is representative of American voters. When the AP/GfK poll screened for likely voters a couple of weeks before the election, it estimated that 48 percent of voters leaned Republican and that 42 percent leaned Democratic (which the election showed to be about right). In its latest survey -- the one that serves as the basis for the AP story -- AP/GfK didn't screen for likely voters and didn't screen for registered voters. Instead, it merely surveyed 1,001 adults. The result? The percentage of Democratic-leaning respondents stayed the same (42 percent), but the percentage of Republican-leaning respondents dropped by 12 points, to 36 percent.  Read more.........

Rasmussen Poll of Support for Repeal of Obamacare -Support for repeal of the national health care law passed last year remains steady, as most voters continue to believe the law will increase the federal budget deficit.  The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that 55% of Likely Voters favor repeal of the health care law, while 40% oppose repeal. Just 40% Strongly Favor repeal, matching the lowest level found since the health care bill became law. Thirty percent (30%) Strongly Oppose repeal. (To see survey question wording, click here.).....
