Gallup Still Finds More Americans Opposed to Dems’ Health Care Bills

As the Senate prepares to take up debate on Democrats’ 2,074-page bill, Gallup finds that 49 percent of Americans are leaning toward advising their member of Congress to vote against health care legislation, compared with just 44 percent who say they would advise their member to vote for it. Meanwhile, among independents, support is only at 37 percent.

Asked about President Obama’s handling of health care, a majority of 53 percent now disapprove, compared with only 40 percent who approve.
