Rasmussen:

Three weeks after Congress passed its new national health care plan, support for repeal of the measure has risen four points to 58%. That includes 50% of U.S. voters who strongly favor repeal.

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of likely voters nationwide finds 38% still oppose repeal, including 32% who strongly oppose it.

Chicago Tribune:

President Barack Obama's job approval rating has slid to 45 percent today in the Gallup Poll's daily tracking, a rolling average of the past three days' surveys.

That's a new low in the Gallup tracks -- which found the president's approval rating at a previous low of 46 percent in early March.
