Rasmussen Poll: 49 Percent Back Lawsuits Against Health Care Mandate
This poll goes some way toward explaining why, as I report today, ambitious Republican politicians are clambering on board with the idea of lawsuits to repeal the health care individual mandate even though the chances of repeal are slim.
Forty-nine percent (49%) of U.S. voters favor their state suing the federal government to fight the requirement in the new national health care plan that every American must obtain health insurance.. 37% disagree and oppose their state suing to challenge that requirement. Fourteen percent (14%) are undecided.
The mandate doesn’t poll well in Rasmussen, and never has. Not clear from the poll: whether or not the critics realize it won’t go into effect until 2014.
