Polling Obamacare

Posted By on Fri, Jun 25, 2010 at 3:09 PM

Interesting age analysis of recent Gallup polling on health care reform legislation. It now enjoys solid support, except among those over 65, who are WAY negative. You know. The people who don't want government health care.

I've just taken a quick look at a coming cover story for the Times by Ernest Dumas that analyzes the impact of health care legislation in Arkansas, both financially and in terms of coverage. Surprise. It's good for the state. Much more to come.

(Nate Silver notes an earlier analysis of this in an Arkansas context.)
