Rasmussen: 24% of voters want Democrats to go it alone.
You can say a lot of things about this Rasmussen poll on health care rationing (and, if you’re a Democratic politician, most of them will probably be scatalogical):
If Democrats agree on a health care reform bill that is opposed by all Republicans in Congress, 24% of voters nationwide say the Democrats should pass that bill.
But a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 58% believe the Democrats should change the bill to win support from “a reasonable number of Republicans.” Nineteen percent (19%) are not sure what congressional Democrats should do.
…but here’s one thought that might escape notice: remember how, last year, there was a lot of confusion about which party was actually running Congress? Well, I think that we can safely assume that this is no longer an issue for the Republican party. Which is funny, because trying to figure out how to make that fact of life clearer was a big problem for us last year…
