The ObamaCare poll that the White House hates: 4 takeaways
By The Week's Editorial Staff – Fri, Jun 8, 2012

A new survey shows that a full two-thirds of Americans would like to see all or part of ObamaCare struck down by the Supreme Court.

Two-thirds of Americans would like to see the Supreme Court strike down all or part of ObamaCare, according to a new poll conducted by The New York Times and CBS. The poll comes as the country awaits the Supreme Court's decision on President Obama's signature legislative achievement, which is expected to be handed down sometime before the end of June. During oral arguments in the spring, conservative justices expressed skepticism about the constitutionality of ObamaCare's central provision: The individual mandate, which requires most Americans to buy health insurance. Here, four takeaways from the latest poll:

1. ObamCare is still very, very unpopular
According to the poll, 41 percent of Americans would like the high court to overturn the entire law, while another 27 percent said only the individual mandate should be struck down. A mere 24 percent said the justices should uphold the entire law. Republicans are particularly opposed to ObamaCare, with about two-thirds saying the whole law should go. However, the law isn't all that popular with Democrats either, with only 43 percent saying the court should keep the entire law intact.

On THIS issue alone, the GOP COULD have won.

So who did the GOPe pick? Why, none other than Mr. RomneyCARE.

Wonder if the Supremes still remember that public dissing given them by Zero at the State of the Union?

GOP chose Romney? I thought it was the voters - the voters in a few states that is - since I never have a choice due to living on the west coast.

I sincerely hope that the SCOTUS strikes this lemon down...but I’m not all that confident.

I’m worried also - the 2 Obama appointees. I hope the judges aren’t all that impressed with Obama’s threats.

Romney won some votes by CHEATING and SMEARing
CONSERVATIVES.

People despise Romney and will not vote on
Election day for him.
How could they.
ROmney reprsents ROMNEYCARE, gay marriage,
increased taxes, Inelgibility, TARP
and even VULTURE Corporatism.

The GOP is finished.

Romney won in large part because conservatives decided to trash each other in the primary.

Many here on FR gleefully joined in. Please understand, I'm not picking on FReepers alone. This was true of conservatives everywhere, but some of the shots posted on here about Bachman, Santorum, Perry, Newt, and even Cain at times were stuff you would normally find at the DUmp.

No conservative candidate was good enough. We had to find all their flaws (real or perceived) and then magnify them as much as possible. We had to make sure we destroyed everyone except our particular chosen candidate regardless the cost.

Unfortunaely, in the end, all of our conservative candidates were too damaged to be viable and Romney was the only guy left standing. I hope that we learned a valuable lesson, but my gut tells me we likely learned absolutely nothing from it, and will do it all over again when given our next chance.

ALL the attacks came from ROmney and his vicious Team
JUST LIKE IN 2008.

That is it. NO MORE SUPPORT OF GOP if ROmney is at the
head of the Ticket.

A ticket supporting ineligibility, RomneyCARE, TARP,
Sharia, and Romneydelusions is NOT about Conservatism.
Worse, it is a ticket about BACKSTABBING CONSERVATIVES.

Romney has NO chance to win, only to ruin the GOP.

Not true. Romney definitely did his share of attacking, but so did the rest of the candidates.

Whichever candidate moved ahead ever so slightly, they all teamed up to destroy.

First Bachmann got it after she won the Iowa straw poll. Then Perry after he entered. The Cain after he rose to the top. Then Newt, then Santorum.

Eventually, we (conservatives) helped knock them all out, to the sheer joy of Romney and the GOPe, and this is what we are stuck with.

I can't stand Romney and feel his election could potentially do more long-term damage to the conservative cause than another Obama term. I'm not sure the country can survive four more years of Obama though, so I guess I hold my nose and pull the GOP lever again this year.

Hi Diogenesis,

I don't think the GOP is finished. But it is not as strong as it could have been. IMHO Romney the nomination because there were to many conservatives running for the office. The same thing happened with McCain. Sad to say because I like the man I believe Ron Paul was a stalking horse for Romney. I am a Newt supporter. I will support Romney with my vote, time, and money. Less bad is better than more bad. Good luck Freeper.

Wow , you nailed it brother. Conservatives spent more energy bashing each other it seemed, than focusing on the end game. I'm still burned about the hatchet job done on Cain, but he should have anticipated what sub human worms infest the MSM and prepared for the onslaught.

Not true.

Team Romney attacked the other conservatives.
They did not attack each other.

DIRT appeared from Marriott (WHy would that be, Milt?)

DIRT appeared from Team Romney over and over
just like 2008.

The implications are that the GOPe has selected
Mr. RomneyCARE, THE American RINO
Backstabber of Conservatives.

Not only is the kenyan idiot exempt but so is congress, the senate and their families. Also, there are 1572 businesses that are exempt, of which over half are union.

I suggest you go back and watch the debates if you don't think the conservatives attacked each other.

They absolutely brutalized each other. For the most part, Mitt was able to just sit back and watch.

You must be kidding.

This is NOT ABOUT DEBATE PERFORMANCE.
IT IS ABOUT BACKSTABBING.

FLASHBACK:

The McCain/Palin ticket was up ++4 to 10 pts
in some polls, days prior to Election 2008.
So rather than helping the GOP, Romney and
TeamROMNEY and the RNME (Republican National Media Establishment)
decided …to attack Gov. Palin to throw Election2008.

Romney, and the Van der Sloot RNME RINOs for Obama in 2008

Late in October, The American Spectator's The Prowler revealed:
"Former Mitt Romney presidential campaign staffers…
have been involved in spreading anti-Palin spin to reporters, seeking to diminish her standing after the election.
'Sarah Palin is a lightweight, she won't be the first, not even the third, person people will think of when it comes to 2012,'
says one former Romney aide…
'The only serious candidate ready to challenge to lead the Republican Party is Mitt Romney.
"Some former Romney aides were behind the recent leaks to media, including CNN, that Governor Sarah Palin was a 'diva' and was going off message intentionally."


The Palmetto Scoop reported: "One of the first stories to hit the national airwaves was
the claim of a major internal strife between close McCain aides and the folks handling his running mate Sarah Palin."
"I’m told by very good sources that this was indeed the case and that a rift had developed, but it was between Palin’s people and the staffers brought on from the failed presidential campaign of former Gov. Mitt Romney, not McCain aides."
"The sources said nearly 80 percent of Romney’s former staff was absorbed by McCain and these individuals were responsible for what amounts to a premeditated, last-minute sabotage of Palin."
… aides loyal to Romney inside the McCain campaign, said The Scoop, reportedly saw
that Palin would be a serious contender for the Republican nomination in 2012 or 2016, which made her a threat to another presidential quest by Romney.


"These staffers are now out trying to finish her off ….hoping it would ingratiate themselves with Mitt Romney."


"Who's the Palin Leaker from the McCain Campaign?
National Review Online The publication of a Vanity Fair profile of Sarah Palin
appears to have opened old wounds in the McCain campaign.
... the source of the “Diva” leak was Nicolle Wallace’s husband."


"Peeking Out From the McCain Wreckage: Mitt Romney"

"Someone's got to say it: IS MITT ROMNEY RESPONSIBLE FOR OBAMA'S VICTORY?"

"Vanity: Team Romney Sabotaged Palin and Continuing to Do So?"

"Romney Supporters Trashing Palin"

"Romney advisors sniping at Palin?"


Poor sport spoiler Romney doing what he does best:

Novak: "Fred Thompson drop-out rumors traced to Romney campaign"

Said Novak: "The rumors were traced in part to Mitt Romney's campaign,
trying to stir up strife between McCain and Thompson
."


"Despite outspending his rivals by huge margins throughout the primaries,
(Mitt Romney, Carpetbagger UT,CA,MA,NH,Mexico) lost Iowa, South Carolina, Florida and California.
The only primaries he won were in Michigan, where Dad was governor; LDS states;
and a few states on Super Tuesday in which his California-obsessed rivals
couldn't spare the cash to advertise.
Only John Connolly in 1968 had a worse cash-to-delegates ratio.
And John McCain rightly did not like Romney's tactics during the primaries.
(W)hen (Romney's early leads) started slipping away, he resorted to unfair,
distorted, scorched-earth negative ads, betting that his opponents couldn't
afford to spend enough for the truth to catch up to his charges."
