THE YOUNG TURN AGAINST OBAMACARE

By DICK MORRIS & EILEEN MCGANN

Previously, we reported to you that our national polling showed that the under-30 voters were the strongest supporters of the Obama healthcare initiative. While seniors opposed it by almost 2-to-1 and voters 30-64 opposed it by five- to 10-point margins, the under-30 voters backed his program by 58-30.

So with the funds you have donated, we ran television advertisements and an Internet campaign aimed at young people focused in Arkansas, North Dakota and Maine. The results are incredible! Now under-30 voters are the strongest opponents of the plan. In the table below, we show you the vote on the Obama plan broken down by age. (We aggregated all three states so we would have enough interviews to make the age subsets statistically meaningful.)

Support/Oppose Obama plan, combined data for Arkansas, North Dakota and Maine

Age Plan Support Oppose Obama Plan

Under 30 25% Support 65% Oppose

30-49 28% Support 60% Oppose

50-64 41% Support 50% Oppose

Over 65 30% Support 55% Oppose

The polling had predicted that the young would swing sharply and dramatically against the Obama program once they got the key information about it, but we are blown away by these results.

These data are from polls the League of American Voters commissioned John Zogby to conduct. Commenting on the results, John said, "These results among 18- to 29-year-olds are striking. It puts in jeopardy the whole theory of the new Democratic majority, because young people are essential to that base."

Boy, is he ever correct!

At the same time that we are seeing this big shift, the national data on ObamaCare continues to show slippage. Rasmussen shows support down to 38 percent (56 percent opposed) from 45-52 right after the House vote.

Will the Senate listen to public opinion? Damn right they will! At this rate, they would have to face the loss of their entire political base to pass this legislation. Politicians don't work that way! These early procedural votes don't mean much. As George W. Bush said in the war on terror, "We have to be right all the time. The enemy just has to get it right once." Now it is the opposite. We just need to win one vote to kill the plan. They need to win them all. And at this rate, the plan is in deep, deep trouble.

Education never supports liberal causes.

George Washington had a slightly different stance on government and religious beliefs than our liberal friends. Reading his Thanksgiving Day Proclamation shows what the Father of our country knew to be most important.

Navy SEALs have secretly captured one of the most wanted terrorists in Iraq — the alleged mastermind of the murder and mutilation of four Blackwater USA security guards in Fallujah in 2004. And three of the SEALs who captured him are now facing criminal charges, sources told FoxNews.com.


What they bloodied his Lip? BikerBard and Liberal POV will be calling for the President Obama's head, How dare troops inflict TORTURE on a Muslim. We must investigate!! The President must be held accountable for the Troops mission they authorized, Right?

Sarkazein said...

Oatz-

Surely the lefties will put blame where blame is due, right in Obowma's lap. Now the terrorists will use that maltreatment of the terrorist as a recruitment tool.
Obowma must plead guilty and throw himself on the mercy of the Iraqi civilian court in Baghdad. If not, how is he any better than the terrorists themselves? Hey, a bloody lip can hurt and get infected. He can be tried in the same court Saddam was tried in.
Our enemies laugh.

No, actually, people with the capacity for reason laugh, you arse.

Whack off as much as you choose, your outnumbered and outdated kin carry zero clout internationally and little more in the voting scheme domestically.

Get used to it, Archie, your days have passed.

Happy Thanksgiving guys!

The young are becoming aware of the generation theft. They have been saddled with enormous debt including the interest on that debt.

They now understand that if this health debacle goes through, they will be commanded to have health insurance or be fined.

Wait until the rest of them wake up.

"Wait until the rest of them wake up." -Blogger

The young were largely responsible for electing Obama. They were sold a bill of goods and now understand that. They're not stupid, just ignorant.

What strikes me as meaningful in regards to waking up is that Obama's entire agenda depends on people not waking up. That's why he wanted health care passed before the August recess. That was the rush in passing the "stimulus" package. That's what Rahm Emanuel meant by not letting a crisis go to waste.

I'm not one that endorses mob rule but swindling Americans is another matter. A good leader sells his agenda by convincing with transparency. Why didn't Obama explain the need and rationalization for death panels, mandatory compliance, lack of tort reform,fines,jail time, covering illegals and the inability to buy insurance across state lines? Wouldn't someone who had a good plan in the best interest of America be eager to set the record straight? Not Obama, he would rather people knew as little as possible. All he did was blame Bush and insult those seeking truth.

You should have entitled this, "The Immature and Undereducated Turn..."

Note to Oatz: You can barely speak for yourself. Don't speak for me. Just copy & paste anything from the New York Times.

True enough. If not for the "immature and undereducated" Obama would have lost. At least some are waking up.

guy fauleks said...

HD, maybe BB was referring to Obama when he spoke of the immature and and uneducated. after all, that is what the man child Messiah has proven to be, if he is not the greatest charlatan and crook in history.

Don't worry there tricycle, we won't speak for you, although it might help you if we did - you can't seem to ever offer a point of view or disagree with one either. LOL!!! Hence the name cheerleader.

I was wondering about something. How do you feel about utilizing all the freedoms given to you by the blood shed of fellow Americans as you seek to erase or abridge those very same freedoms? The hypocrisy of liberal socialists such as yourself would be downright laughable if that freedom robbing hypocrisy weren't a reality for a majority of Americans.

I am sure you are seething with immeasurable anger right now at not being able to push back on anything I say or do, but then again so are most of your liberal socialist sheep friends!! LOL! Take a deep breath, wipe the slobber spilling over your expansive, spaghetti stained belly before it shorts out your keyboard, and try to concentrate on the task at hand. Maybe even take a triple hit of the lithium your doctor prescribed!!

You know Cheerleader, maybe you should hire me to write your comebacks for you. Hell, I'm not anywhere near being a liberal socialist such as yourself, yet I could do a much better job than you and dimwit POV combined!!!! LOL!!! I won't charge much as anything with a liberal slant can't be very well thought out or in-depth! LOL!!

This just keeps getting better and better!! Sometimes when I don't feel like playing volleyball with the girls, I engage in my other sport - making you and the other liberal socialist sheep look like the buffoons you are!!!! LOL!!!

Your ole pal

Thank you, and I think the very same about you! Happy Holidays.

Honest Debate: "The Immature and Undereducated Turn..."

In one phrase, you have defined how this misadventure of Obama has come upon us. I don't expect the undereducated to wake up, but perhaps both of these groups next election will at least have the decency to stay home like they always have in the past.

guy faulkes said...

I personally feel that the uneducated are finally getting their education. Unfortunately, it has nearly ruined the country in order to get them to see the light. Obama's approval rating keeps dropping. People are starting to realize you cannot spend your way to prosperity. It may take us 50 years, but if we are successful in stopping government run health care and cap and tax, we have a chance. The amount of turnover in 2010 will also be a huge factor. I am not talking about Republican over Democrat. I am talking about conservative over liberal. Some of this turn over has be done within the party primaries.
