Skip to comments.Poll: Obamacare Ruling Makes Voters ‘Less Likely’ to Vote for Obama (By a 15-point margin)
Posted on 07/13/2012 6:50:35 AM PDT by Qbert
The latest Quinnipiac poll shows that by a 15-point margin the Supreme Courts Obamacare ruling makes voters less likely, rather than more likely, to cast their vote for President Obama. Twenty-seven percent of registered voters say that the ruling makes them less likely to vote for Obama, while only 12 percent say that it makes them more likely to do so. Only 9 percent of independents say that they are more likely to vote for Obama because of the ruling, compared to 27 percent who are less likely.
Among Catholics a large percentage of whom are historically swing voters 35 percent say that the ruling makes them less likely to vote for Obama, while only 10 percent say it makes them more likely to vote for him.
Most voters (55 percent) say that the candidates positions on Obamacare will be extremely or very important in influencing their vote for president.
The poll shows that, by a 6-point margin (49 to 43 percent), registered voters want to see Obamacare repealed. Independents favor repeal by an 8-point margin (49 to 41 percent). Catholics favor repeal by a 22-point margin (58 to 36 percent). Repeal is supported by men, women, those between the ages of 18 and 34, those between the ages of 35 and 54, those who are 55 or over, those who make less than $30,000 annually, those who make between $30,000 and $50,000, those who make between $50,000 and $100,000, and those who make over $100,000.
This poll and the past 100 repeal polls from Rasmussen Reports shows that the House of Representatives was doing the peoples bidding when it voted yesterday to repeal Obamacare by a 59-vote margin (244 to 185). Conversely, the House was not doing the peoples bidding when (then under Democratic control) it voted to pass Obamacare in 2010 by a mere 7-vote margin (219 to 212).
Thank you, John Roberts. Chief Justice Roberts will be accepting apologizes on this thread. You know who you are! :)
The GOP will need to keep the heat up on Obamacare/Obamatax though, and not let voters get distracted by Obama’s demagoguery of the day. Obamacare is forever unless we can stop it, of course.
Elections are transitory and temporal. Legal precedents are much more permanent and long term. Roberts has undermined our individual liberties as guaranteed in the Constitution.
Exactly. On top of all that it was not Roberts’ job to play politics, it was his job to uphold the Constitution which he absolutely failed to do.
