Rasmussen: 63% of U.S. voters favor health care repeal

Today at Rasmussen Reports, you will discover that overall support for repeal of the recently passed health care reform law has reached new highs:
Support for repeal of the new national health care plan has jumped to its highest level ever. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 63% of U.S. voters now favor repeal of the plan passed by congressional Democrats and signed into law by President Obama in March.

Prior to today, weekly polling had shown support for repeal ranging from 54% to 58%.

Currently, just 32% oppose repeal.

The new findings include 46% who Strongly Favor repeal of the health care bill and 25% who Strongly Oppose it.

While opposition to the bill has remained as consistent since its passage as it was beforehand, this marks the first time that support for repeal has climbed into the 60s. It will be interesting to see whether this marks a brief bounce or indicates a trend of growing opposition.

Thirty-three percent (33%) of voters now believe the health care plan will be good for the country, down six points from a week ago and the lowest level of confidence in the plan to date. Fifty-five percent (55%) say it will be bad for the nation. Only three percent (3%) think it will have no impact.
This is very bad news for the Democrats, but it will be little discussed by the mainstream media.  They are too busy covering the ineffective response of the Obama administration to the Gulf oil spill, and our failed foreign policy with China, Russia, Iran, North Korea and Israel.

Just kidding.
