Worse and Worse for the Democrats

Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid confidently predicted that once they enacted Obamacare, voters would come to love it. While I didn’t buy that spin, I did think there was a good chance that many less-engaged voters would view the government takeover as a fait accompli and would accommodate themselves to it. In fact, the opposite has happened: as time goes by–so far, at least–opposition to Obamacare grows. Scott Rasmussen finds that 58 percent of voters now favor repeal of Obamacare; a mere 38 percent want the law to remain in effect.
This trend is heartening, not only because I think the law’s opponents are correct, but because it means the public has soundly rejected the Democrats’ tactic of smearing the bill’s opponents rather than arguing their case on the merits.
