Well, that didn't take long. And the GOP knew it, which is why they fought so hard against HCR passing. USA Today ran a poll last night, or perhaps over the last couple of nights, and the results are positive.
Americans by 9 percentage points have a favorable view of the health care overhaul that President Obama signed into law Tuesday, a USA TODAY/Gallup Poll finds, a notable turnaround from surveys before the vote that showed a plurality against it.
By 49%-40% those surveyed say it was "a good thing" rather than a bad one that Congress passed the bill. Half describe their reaction in positive terms, as "enthusiastic" or "pleased," while about four in 10 describe it in negative ways, as "disappointed" or "angry."
The largest single group, 48%, calls the bill "a good first step" that should be followed by more action on health care. An additional 4% also have a favorable view, saying the bill makes the most important changes needed in the nation's health care system.
Bonus stat: POTUS approval on health care 46%; GOP approval on health care 26%.
The Party of No losing again.
Update: Since this diary is now rec'd, I'm going to include this short video showing a bunch of Republicans speaking out IN FAVOR of the individual mandate. Bookmark it for your friends.
The public hates hypocrites, they just need to have the facts.
