CNN released a new national poll...this morning...
The poll asked respondents a fairly straightforward question: "As you may know, a bill that makes major changes to the country's health care system became law earlier this year. Based on what you have read or heard about that legislation, do you generally favor or generally oppose it?"
Though support has gone up a bit over the course of the year, while opposition has declined, we're still left with 43% favoring the new law, as compared to 54% who disapprove. Steady improvements in the numbers don't change the fact that opponents still outnumber supporters.
But to its credit, CNN asked the much-needed follow-up question:
"Do you oppose that legislation because you think its approach toward health care is too liberal, or because you think it is not liberal enough?"
Oppose, too liberal: 37%
Oppose, not liberal enough 13%
