Via Geraghty, the numbers from the very credible polling firm Public Opinion Strategies:
I struggle with complex math, but that looks to me like Americans who have an opinion on health care oppose the president's plan by a 3 to 2 margin. Meanwhile, more than a third of Americans have no opinion, which I continue to believe is more a product of the Democrats' strategy than some failure on the part of the media or the people themselves. With the nation focused almost exclusively on health care over the last month, Democrats chose to use all the bandwidth they had to paint the opposition as Nazis. Perhaps if they'd used that time to explain the bill and address the concerns of opponents, these numbers wouldn't be quite so catastrophic.
