A new poll reveals that Americans are evenly split on the Supreme Court's health care decision -- and that, unsurprisingly, opinions are closely tied to political party.
The USA Today/Gallup poll found that 46 percent of respondents agree with the court's ruling that the law is Constitutional, while 46 percent disagree. Seventy-nine percent of Democrats back the high court's decision, while only 13 percent of Republicans do. Independents are divided, with 45 percent agreeing with the court and 42 percent disagreeing.
Wow, in a matter of hour, after the Supreme Court deemed the law that every unpatriotic right-wing nut screamed and shouted to be unconstitutional, CONSTITUTIONAL – the law went from being unpopular to popular among Independents, and evenly split among everyone else… WOW!"
I fail to see any hole poking.<quoted text>
"The USA TODAY/Gallup Poll of 1,012 adults has a margin of error of +/-4 percentage points."
So all your bluster about independents disappears in the margin of error.
How about this?.....
--By more than 2 to 1, those polled say politics played too great a role in the court's decision. That view is most frequently expressed by opponents of the decision — 80% of Republicans and 67% of independents say they feel that way, compared with 47% of Democrats.
So much fun poking holes in your self-proclaimed "perspicacity".
I heard the even though the poll was released on Friday, 1/2 the polling was done on 1/2 on Wednesday before the decision and 1/2 on Thursday night and a look at the Rep/Dem approval/disapproval of the court were damn near identical but flipped.
