Investors Business Daily (which leans right!) reports on their poll finding Democrats aren't in love with ObamaCare generally or the individual mandate specifically:
And polls continue to show it has little popular support either. For example, a poll just conducted for IBD by TechnoMetrica Market Intelligence found that only 22% said they wanted the justices to uphold the entire law, while 37% said strike down the whole thing and 30% said to strike down only the law’s individual mandate to buy health insurance. Another 10% were unsure.
Strikingly, the same poll found that while 39% of Democrats wanted the law upheld, 38% wanted the mandate struck down and another 12% wanted the whole thing thrown out. In other words, 50% want part or all of the law tossed. Even taking into account that some of those may be liberals who dislike ObamaCare because it isn’t more expansive, it’s a striking rejection of the president’s main accomplishment by his own party.
They do not make the point that Obama spent the 2008 campaign opposing the individual mandate and only flip-flopped evolved after the election.
2012 could be fun, as Dems run ads showing Romney supporting ObamaCare and Reps run ads of Obama opposing the mandate. Well, the Supremes may end our fun in June. Or start new fun!
