While the Supreme Court declared that the presidents health care law is constitutional, they were unable to make it popular. Fifty-two percent (52%) still favor repeal of the law. Thats little changed from a week ago and little changed since the law was passed more than two years ago. However, while most voters still hope for repeal, the belief that it will happen has fallen sharply. Just 39% now believe repeal is even somewhat likely, down from 61% last week.
Ratings for the Supreme Court have slipped since the health care ruling. A week ago, 36% said the high court was doing a good or an excellent job. Thats down to 33% today. The big change is a rise in negative perceptions. Today, 28% say the court is doing a poor job. Thats up 11 points over the past week.
A growing number (56%) now believe the Justices pursue their own agenda rather than ruling on an impartial basis. Also, the number who see the Court as too liberal is up while the number who see it as too conservative is down. The Courts ratings are slipping at a time when just 22% believe the government has the consent of the governed.
Political analyst Michael Barone writes that even though the health care law survived, the political playing field has changed. It's not a winning issue for the incumbent.

This must be wrong. Chucky Schumer said hc is a loser for the GOP
Can’t buy me love
Everybody tells me so
Can’t buy me love
No, no, no, no
I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again. Romney, if he really cares about our country, can go down as one of the most important Presidents in recent history. It all depends on what he really wants to accomplish and if he’s not going to bend to the politicians.
Time to be polling just the Electoral College status.
I find it hard to believe that Obama has this much support.
Romney needs a slogan, reminiscent of Nixon’s ‘72 slogan: Nixon, now more than ever.
Romney, because I just don’t care any more......
Romney, because I don’t have any thing else better to do.......
ADD YOU PWN......
Romney, so we can have more like John Roberts on the Supreme Court.
Reliable state polls will not be available until after Labor Day, what is out there now is just noise and most of the noise is from media driven polls trying to pump up Obama. Look at the national polls but not the numbers, watch the trend. Trends will not be good for Obama, both the economy and Obamacare will pull him down.
Romney, because your current POtuS is a terrorist purposefully working with other enemies of the United States to make her crumble.
“Look at the national polls but not the numbers, watch the trend”
This is key. Pick out a polling organization you trust, and then watch the trends. stay away from Real Clear Politics polling average. They include all polls even those with a proven bias which muddies the water.
I’ve heard some people say that some of these polls are “doctored”, because certain liberals want to produce polls to show that Obama is more popular than he really is.
True about those elections but in a presidential election the turnout by the blacks will be back up
I trust Bloomberg...so i guess im screwed....just kidding
“True about those elections but in a presidential election the turnout by the blacks will be back up”
They may be “back up”, but they are still less than 12% of the population. Only a small percentage of that number vote.
If the thinking percentage of the citizens show up and vote, Zero looses in a landslide.
Two weeks before the 2010’s special Senatorial election in Massachusetts the RAT was up by something like 15 points.
Pick out a polling organization you trust, and then watch the trends. stay away from Real Clear Politics polling average. They include all polls even those with a proven bias which muddies the water.
Rasmussen. He’s pretty accurate based on past real results....
