A stunning new poll from CNN finds that 61% of Americans oppose the healthcare bill currently working its way through the U.S. Senate. 36% support the bill.
This 25-point gap for a bill that Democrats have claimed enjoys ‘overwhelming support’ may put the brakes on the bill in the Senate, if not change minds in the U.S. House.
Some other poll highlights:
*79% believe the bill will increase the deficit.
*85% believe the bill will increase their taxes.
*40% trust the GOP more on health care, compare to 43% who trust Democrats.
*39% believe the country would be better off if Republicans controlled the Congress, vs. 40% who think the same of Democrats. Previous polls showed a 10%+ gap for Democrats.
All in all, a potentially game-changing result for the debate on Capital Hill.
