Affordable Care Act getting more popular?
I wouldn't put too much stock in one poll, but the AP-GfK poll shows support for health-care reform rising from 39 percent in May to 45 percent in June, while opposition fell from 46 percent to 42 percent. There's no obvious reason this should've happened, so I'm inclined to treat it skeptically. But it's also worth noting that on Tuesday, Rep. Dave Camp tried to repeal the theoretically unpopular individual mandate, and his effort failed by 43 votes -- a much larger margin than the bill originally passed by. At this point it looks like Americans and their representatives are inclined to give this thing a chance.
