Obamacare makes the ’62 Mets look like the ’27 Yankees.  Since President Obama signed Obamacare into law on March 23, 2010, Rasmussen Reports has conducted 114 polls asking likely voters whether they’d prefer to keep Obamacare or repeal it.  All 114 times, voters have said they’d prefer to repeal it.  In 107 of those polls — including the one released today — Obamacare’s margin of defeat has been double-digits.

Only four teams in the modern history of Major League Baseball (1901-present) have managed to lose 114 or more games.  The 1962 New York Mets lost 120, the 2003 Detroit Tigers lost 119, the 1916 Philadelphia Athletics lost 117, and the 1935 Boston Braves lost 115.  (Even the St. Louis Browns never managed to lose 114 games.)  Yet, as horrible as these four teams were, they nevertheless combined to win 157 games, and they each had a winning percentage of at least .235.  Obamacare has a win-loss record of 0-114 and a winning percentage of .000.
