    AP-Gfk poll shows gains for health care overhaul

    WASHINGTON – A new Associated Press-Gfk poll finds public support for President Barack Obama's health care law has risen to its highest point to date.

    Yet the nation remains divided over the new law, with 45 percent in favor and 42 percent opposed.

    Still, that's a significant change from May, when supporters were outnumbered 39 percent to 46 percent. And it's the strongest backing for the overhaul since the AP-Gfk poll began asking in September.

    The poll found gains in support since May among men, people under age 65 and Republicans. The uptick among Republicans comes even as party leaders are calling for the law's repeal.
  2. People were against SS and Medicaid ,now they are 2 of the most popular programs ever

    Like SS and Medicaid Obamacare started off unpopular,but will rise in popularity quickly and Republicans are fucked
  3. As always, if the other party is fucked (in this case, Reps) this is the good public policy and an important point.

    Pretty much this is current attitude of our "leaders", starting with Obama's comment "We won, you're fucked."
