More polls show health-care reform gaining popularity
The Kaiser Family Foundation is the latest survey outlet to see positive movement on the health-care reform bill. In their May poll, 41 percent approved of the bill and 44 percent didn't. Their June poll has flipped to 48 percent approval and 41 percent disapproval. That's the fourth poll in a row to show improving numbers for the legislation: The AP and Gallup polls both flipped from plurality disapproval to plurality approval, and the NBC/WSJ poll registered a slight (2 percent, which is within the margin of error) improvement in the bill's numbers, but remained at plurality disapproval.
These are fairly small changes in the numbers, to be sure. But then, the numbers on health-care reform were always fairly closely divided. It's possible we're just seeing random shifts in the same direction in multiple consecutive polls, and if so, future surveys will bear that out. For now, I looked at Pollster.com's aggregation of health-care polls, and the last time the bill did this well was in September of 2009, right after the president's big speech.
