Fresh Poll: What Do Voters Think of ObamaCare Now?
At Pajamas Media, we've gotten our hands on a national CrossTarget poll regarding ObamaCare. CrossTarget is an Alexandria, VA, survey research firm that conducts polling for Pajamas Media, among others. The survey asked a little over 1,400 likely voters a series of questions about their political affiliation; national right direction/wrong direction; and ObamaCare, which has been the law of the land since the Democrats pushed it and President Obama signed it back in March 2010. Its margin of error is 2.6%. It was conducted Nov. 30 through Dec. 1, 2010.
To give you some sense of its sampling, Question 3 asks, Do you consider yourself a Democrat, a Republican or something else?
1. Democratic 37%
2. Republican 37%
3. Something else 26%
Question 4 is the first indication of bad news for President Obama, asking: Generally speaking, would you say things in this country are heading in the right direction or in the wrong direction?
1. Right Direction 27.7%
2. Wrong Direction 65.1%
3. No Opinion 7.2%
There's no better news in Question 5, which asks: How would you rate the job Barack Obama has been doing as President… do you strongly approve, somewhat approve, somewhat disapprove, or strongly disapprove of the job President Obama has been doing?
1. Strongly approve 19.7%
2. Somewhat approve 27.9%
3. Somewhat disapprove 14%
4. Strongly disapprove 37%
5. Undecided 1.3%
Strongly disapprove at 37? Us rabid Texans can't account for all of that.
