article imageNew Poll: Support for Healthcare Reform Plan Drops to Record Low

By Patrick McMahon     Aug 11, 2009 in Politics
A new Rasmussen Reports Poll, just released this afternoon, show that public support for healthcare reform has fallen to a new low.
The poll results show only 42% of Americans support the healthcare reform plan spearheaded by President Obama and the Democratic Party. A record 53% of Americans are opposed to the plan. Since Rasmussen Reports have been polling on healthcare reform starting six weeks ago, the public approval rate has fallen eight points and the public disapproval rate has risen by nine percentage points.
This poll shows the potential headache ahead along the road to healthcare reform. With public opinion dropping and the town hall meetings heating up, the debate looks like it will continue to rage on. It is shaping up to be a long few weeks leading to September when Congress will take up the healthcare issue again.
Note: Rasmussen Reports is an independent polling agency and is among the most accurate of all polling firms.
