Poll: Democrats Recover Some of Their Health Care Polling Lead Over the GOP

Republicans (see here) are pushing a CNN poll that has opposition to health care reform legislation running to 59 percent. Two things I noticed, however, that hint at the sub rosa worries some conservatives have about this.
First, that high opposition number is split — only 43 percent of people say they oppose the bill because it’s “too liberal,” while 13 percent say it’s “not liberal enough.”
Second, I see that since December, Democrats have gained a little ground — within the margin of error — on the question of which party voters “trust more to handle major changes in the country’s health care system.” A three-point lead has become a six-point lead.
It’s really anybody’s guess what happens to these numbers now — GOP strategist Patrick Ruffini, in a bit of expectation-setting, predicts that President Obama’s approval numbers will soon rise to 58 or 59 percent.
