More Arkansas polling from Stephens Media. A majority don’t like pending health care legislation and disapprove of our senators vote for it.
But you still have to wonder. A solid 60 percent want legislation that would prevent an insurance company from denying coverage, as this legislation would do. Only 15 percent think our current system is sound. Despite the avalanche of bad press and misleading advertising, less than a majority opposed mandatory health insurance coverage. Opposition to a government-run health program was only 54 percent. I wonder what the number would have been had they asked support for a public option or government-run program like Medicare.
The baseline bad news for political incumbents is that a solid majority believe the economy is on the wrong track.
