As in the headline to his Thursday WSJ column:
The GOP Is Winning the Health-Care Debate
Here's the latest from NYT/CBS News poll [emphasis added]:
Regardless of how you usually vote, who do you think has better ideas about reforming the health care system: Barack Obama, or the Republicans in Congress?
Barack Obama Republicans in Congress
9/19-23/09 52% 27%
And oh yeah, theres' this, from the latest Quinnipiac poll:
- Voters disapprove 64% to 25% of the way Republicans in Congress are doing their job, with even 42% of Republican voters disapproving
- Only 29% think Republicans on Capitol Hill are acting in good faith
- Voters trust Obama more than Republicans 47% to 31% to handle health care
- By a 53% to 25% margin, voters have an unfavorable opinion of the Republican Party
Just imagine what those numbers would look like if the GOP were losing the health care debate.
