Desperate Dems Keep Dropping in Polls

The Obama propaganda blitz is in full swing. At a time when Congressmen can barely seem to find a supporter for the Obamacare plan, the President’s town hall meetings are packed with them. The administration swears lies that they’re not handpicked crowds intended to boost Obama’s ratings and poll numbers for the nationalization of the health care industry, but it’s impossible to believe him.

In Rasmussen’s Daily Presidential Tracking Poll the number of likely voters who disapprove of the President’s policies has now risen to 52%, the highest it’s been since his inauguration. ARRA News Service notes a Gallup poll shows the President’s full court press to push the issue hasn’t helped. Last month 50% of respondents disapproved of Obama’s handling of the health care issue while 44% approved. This month, even with the concerted effort by Obama and his lackeys, 49% disapprove and 43% approve. A net gain of zero.

Other polls show 54% of Americans favor middle class tax cuts over spending more than a trillion dollars for a government takeover of the health care industry and support among likely voters for HR 3200 has fallen to a new low with only 42% favoring the House plan.  The growing distrust of Obama on his signature issue isn’t sitting well with the President or his supporters.

After the Obama administration threatened to “punch back twice as hard,” protests began turning violent as desperate liberals attacked when they felt their dream of socialized medicine slipping away.  Many Congressmen are refusing to hold more town hall meetings as the futility of fooling voters becomes apparent.  Once the Democratic strategy of lying to Americans at town halls failed to accomplish desired results, the Obama camp turned to attacking the ordinary citizens standing up for their freedom.  Democrats in the White House and elsewhere labeled protesters “un-American” and an “angry mob.”

As the polls referenced above show, their desperate tactics have thus far been unable to stop the rushing tide of resistance to a government takeover of another 1/6 of our economy.  Now Obamanot Senator Chuck Shumer (D-NY) is looking  to force the American people to accept the unpopular takeover by trashing the Senate tradition of allowing unlimited debate by re-labeling the health care bill as a sort of budget bill.  Dishonest?  Yes.  But Democrats have little respect for truth and transparency.

Conservatives still have the advantage though.  With public sentiment against Obama and Democratic policies growing at an unbelievable pace and the 2010 campaign season pretty much beginning now, Dems up for re-election have to be squirming in their seat, especially Blue Dogs in conservative districts.  They realize their necks are on the line if their constituents are unhappy when they pull the lever in November.

As long as the opposition to a government-run health care system doesn’t fade, Pelosi and Obama won’t have the votes to pass Obamacare.
