There is still a wide margin of difference in all primary polls including CNN (41%/56%), ABC News/Washington Post (43%/55%), Associated Press (42%/58%), NBC News/Wall Street Journal (43%/54%) and Quinnipiac (38%/57%).
The new year has just begun. More surprises await.

Liberals need to be careful not to jump the gun too soon when it comes to interpreting the polls.

It's not like Obamacare was a success and is just going to get better. In fact, the opposite is proving to be true.

In other words, it's not like Obamacare is going to go away and be swept under the rug by the liberal media this time.

It's widely understood there will be more problems before it gets fixed - if and when it becomes a success.

A lot of people aren't going to be as patient when it comes to their health care as this administration seems to think.

Try and imagine the most radical rightwing conservative you can muster who only served in the U.S. Senate for two years with no real world experience in a leadership capacity and little, if any, contributions as a politician who had connections with fringe rightwing zealots and organizations and who felt it was his mission to single-handedly change this nation into a staunch rightwing country after going about the business of pushing a signature piece of legislation to do so during an economic crisis of which the majority were against and which excluded any input from Democrats but yet still passed on a strictly partisan Republican vote.
Then try and imagine this president demonizing Democrats at every opportunity and blaming them for not falling in line and simply going along with his personal vision.
If you can imagine that even for a split second, then you know what it's like to be a conservatives over the past five years.
In this real world scenario - only with the shoe on the other foot - you can imagine Democrats would be a little vocal too. Rightfully so. The difference is so would a lot of Republicans.
We still have three branches of power and one party was never meant to monopolize the system for party power against the will of the people for political gain.
Imagine this same radical rightwing president looking the other way in an IRS scandal which literally interrogated liberal individuals and organizations after denying them the same tax exemptions as conservative ones.
It's a lot to imagine, I know. But at least you know what it's like being in our shoes.

No one ever claimed the ACA wasn't still here last year. Certainly not me.

Nixon remained in office too until the media and public opinion resulted in his forced resignation.

If Obama were Nixon, he'd more than likely be in the same boat about now. But the media is on Obama's side and both ignore public opinion.

And you are helping them to bamboozle us.

If you, and Obama, for that matter, ever read the Constitution at least once in your lives, you'd see that the American Revolution was about a hell of a lot more than that. The Founding Fathers invented a concept of government that had never existed in human society previously: Limited government.
You idiots need an education. You probably have some sheepskin from some bullshit university to back up your ignorant conclusions. How you managed to get what you ludicrously call an "education" without learning this is almost beyond comprehension. There has to be some conspiracy to keep you ignorant.
Seems the Repugnants running Utah didn't bother to read the Constitution.

Why is that??

Or the Teabaggers in Congress who demanded same sex marriage be prohibited.

If they had, they'd know the 14th Amendment makes their homophobe apttempts to outlaw same sex marriage is UnConstitutional.

Funny how you "Constitutionalists" have been losing on Constitutional issues, like DOMA.

The Supreme Court shot down your sides hatred for freedom.

Same Sex marriage now legal in 18 States, the rest are court rulings away.

Yes, Liberals wrote the Constitution, and they know it means freedom for all Americans, not just the favored few.

You lose again, Dweeb. But you're used to it.

Keep whining, we enjoy your pain.

Chrysler now an Italian company, courtesy of US taxpayers...

U.S. automaker Chrysler will become fully owned by Italy's Fiat under terms of an agreement announced Wednesday that also involves the United Auto Workers union.

The agreement comes more than 4-1/2 years after the Obama administration brought Fiat in to keep Chrysler in business as part of a packaged bankruptcy proceeding.

In a statement, Fiat said it has agreed to pay $3.65 billion for the 41.46% of Chrysler it doesn't already own from the UAW's medical benefits trust for retirees.

Happy New Year Real!

I had a republican friend here over the holidays; she told me that 48 of her customers have closed their businesses due to Obamacare!
When I asked her what they planned to do; she said they were going to get jobs instead!
What a crock.
Who would closed his business because of that? I'm not buying it.

No matter how bad it might have been perceived, those are now the good old days. Obama is in way over his head and has been a total disaster. As predicted by Jeebus. "yes, they only wanted a black president."

President Obama is beginning 2014 on the upswing as millions are signing up for the ACA, and his approval rating has increased by 5 points according to Gallup.
The Gallup Obama approval daily tracking poll reveals that the president’s approval rating has jumped five points since the days before Christmas from 39%-44%. Disapproval of the president has fallen from 54%-49%. President Obama’s approval numbers shift wildly based on the tone of the media coverage that he is receiving, but media’s negativity was hiding a convergence of positive things.
Now that the ACA website is repaired, and millions of Americans are signing up, the media’s endless drumbeat of negativity has temporarily stopped. Without the Republican fueled Obama bashing from the corporate media, the president’s approval rating has gone up, and his disapproval rating has gone down.
Republicans and the media have consistently failed to understand, and in many cases actively worked to undermine, the fact that President Obama remains basically popular. For the sixth year in a row, the president was named the most admired man in the world. For as much as Republicans try to project their hatred and contempt for this president on to the nation, the rest of the country has never shared their feelings.

POLL

33% of Americans don't believe in evolution but that humans and other living things have gone unchanged since the beginning of time.

The phone survey of 1,983 adults was conducted during March and April 2013 and has a 3% margin for error.

So much for polls

The contractor building the financial management system for Healthcare.gov is being blamed by a Houston hospital for delayed Medicare reimbursements that have caused the hospital to miss payrolls for weeks. Novitas Solutions is the federal government's new Medicare payment processor for the south-central region of the country hired by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), a division of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS.) ABC-KTRK in Houston reports:

According to the CEO Jason Leday, more than 150 employees haven't been paid in nearly a month.

"I understand that they have children and a house payment, bills. Not getting paid is wow," nearby resident Theresa Gutierrez said.

The hospital is strapped for cash not because its not making money, but because Leday says a new Medicare payment facilitator named Novitas Solutions is taking too way long to pay out Medicare claims to the hospital.

Leday says he's owed nearly $3 million in payments from Medicare and can't make payroll...

The Texas Medical Association says they are familiar with complaints like this one regarding the medicare payment facilitator- and a representative told us smaller community hospitals like this one are in similar situations.
