Health Care Compact Alliance not a sponsor of Tuesday’s email from pollster Rasmussen

On Monday, a group opposed to federal health care sponsored an email from Rasmussen Reports containing survey results showing that people oppose federal health care. On Tuesday, Rasmussen sent out another of its “Daily Updates” — this one containing neither polling data on federal health care, nor advertisements for the Health Care Compact Alliance.

As the Texas Independent has previously reported, HCCA is a 501(c)4 nonprofit led by Sam Adams Alliance CEO Eric O’Keefe of Chicago and construction mogul Leo Linbeck III of Houston. HCCA is pushing for states to implement interstate “health care compacts” to supplant federal health care — an idea that can be traced back to former Texas Solicitor General Ted Cruz, writing for conservative think tank Texas Public Policy Foundation.

Picking up on Monday’s Texas Independent story, an editor for progressive website Daily Kos writes, “Rasmussen apparently isn’t even trying to appear non-partisan, any more.”

According to the Rasmussen survey, 58 percent of respondents favored repealing federal health care reform, with 36 percent opposing repeal. Those numbers are consistent with results of Rasmussen surveys on the topic since March of 2010, with support for repeal ranging from 50-64 percent, and opposition to repeal ranging from 32-44 percent.

The Daily Kos editor contrasts Rasmussen’s results with those from a poll from the Kaiser Family Foundation, showing that 39 percent of respondents favor repealing the law and 51 percent either want to keep the law as is or expand it. Another Daily Kos story notes that 53 percent of KFF poll respondents were “confused” about federal health care reform.

In Tuesday’s “Daily Update” from Rasmussen, the polling firm included survey results on low approval of congressional incumbents, negative perceptions of the economy, ebbing concerns about Japanese radiation and a generic congressional ballot. The advertisements on the email are for books by pollster Scott W. Rasmussen and for Pulse Opinion Research, Rasmussen’s venture based in Arlington, Texas.
