Swing-State Voters Oppose Obamacare
National Review Online ^ | May 3, 2012 | Ammon Simon

Posted on 05/04/2012 12:13:42 AM PDT by neverdem

Over at The Volokh Conspiracy, Randy Barnett points out a new Quinnipac poll of swing-state voters in Florida, Ohio, and Pennsylvania. The poll is consistent with previous polling data on Obamacare, indicating that striking down all or part of Obamacare would not do great damage to the Supreme Court’s public image and perceived credibility.

According to the poll, 53 percent of Florida voters, 52 percent of Ohio voters, and 46 percent of Pennsylvania voters think Congress should try to repeal the health-care law. This is notable for how far voters are willing to go in their opposition to Obamacare, when offered that stark choice. A similar result comes when the voters are asked if they want the Supreme Court to overturn the health-care law. Fifty-one percent of both Florida and Ohio voters, along with 46 percent of Pennsylvania voters want to see the health-care law overturned.

Consistent with previous polling data, opposition to Obamacare cuts across party lines. Only 44 percent of Florida voters, 42 percent of Ohio voters, and 39 percent of Pennsylvania voters in the same poll were would be Romney supporters.

The polls in each state had a margin of error of +/- 2.9 percent.

I consider Florida and Ohio as genuine swing states, unlike states like Indiana, Virginis and North Carolina where voters went for the rat nominee for President for the first time in decades in 2008. However, the Pennsylvania GOP kicked butt and took names in 2010 taking the governor's house, both houses of the legislatue, the U.S. Senate seat of Arlen Specter, who lost in the rat primary, and at least a few seats in the U.S. House of Rep.

You know....the Clinton administration would have had various surveys ahead of time and at least known of the impact of a bad decision. One gets the impression that the current White House really hasn’t done any prior planning to their agenda.

I never thought that I could loathe anyone as much as I loathe(d) the Clintons, but, B. Hussein Obama has even made me wish Hillary would have won that Democratic nomination in 2008.

Do you live in PA neverdem? I’d really like to know what the Keystone State folks are thinking and if the GOP really has a shot at winning PA in 2012. Whatcha think? PA has really been a disappointment in the last few Presidential Elections. But, with only 10% of the population being Black and 5% being Hispanic, two demographics that are strongly Democrat, I’m thinking: Could this be the year the GOP win PA?

I wouldn`t be so quick to wish that.. Hillary is very much aligned with 0bama`s ideology. Her views on virtually every issue are pegged just as hardcore left as his.

Hillary amounts to little more than a manlier, paler, pants-wearing version of 0bama.

BTW, my hatred for B. Hussein Obama has nothing to do with his race. He is a dyed-in-the-wool Marxist Muslim who’s goals, I truly believe, are not in the best interest of this nation.

I’m just loving a FR thread about fighting Obama for a change.

Refreshing!

No, I'm in NYC.

The rat's obsession with manmade global warming leaves them vulnerable to defections from the United Mine Workers, 50 coal fired plants have been closed, IIRC, people making money or saving money on their utility bills thanks to fracking natural gas, and those in rural PA and suburbia getting killed by expensive motor vehicle fuel.
