Are the People Exactly Right?

Editor’s note: Look at the results of the latest Rasmussen report. How close are the percentages of those who believe they will be worse off and those who be better off to reality? If worse or the same care, and more taxes represent those opposed, and those with better access and government financial aid represent those that believe they will be better off…

Earlier this morning, the United States Senate passed its version of health care reform on a party-line vote. The Senate Democrats must now reconcile the bill with the version passed by the House of Representatives and then hope to sell voters on the idea. Most voters (55%)oppose the health care legislation working its way through Congress. Those who feel strongly about the legislation are overwhelmingly opposed to it.

Most voters (54%) also believe they personally will be worse off if the health care plan passes. Just 25% think they will be better off. Some Democratic leaders and strategists have suggested the plan will become more popular once it has been passed and people see how it works.
