NBC/WSJ POLL: Obama health #s inch up, Repugs at 21% approval, will be blamed if reforms not passed
NBC/WSJ: Obama health #s inch up
Posted: Tuesday, September 22, 2009 5:00 PM by Mark Murray
Filed Under: Polls
From NBC's Mark Murray

Here's another tease of our new NBC/WSJ poll: According to the poll, the presidents health-care numbers have slightly increased, although that increase remains within the margin of error. Thirty-nine percent believe Obamas health-care plan is a good idea, which is up three points since August. Forty-one percent say its a bad idea.

In addition, 45% approve of Obamas handling of health care, while 46% disapprove, which is up from his 41%-47% score last month. By comparison, just 21% approve of the Republican Partys handling of the issue.

And who will get blamed if health care doesn't get passed this year? Per the poll, 10% say Obama, 16% say congressional Democrats, and 37% say congressional Republicans.

The poll was conducted Sept. 17-20 and has an overall margin of error of plus-minus 3.1%. The full poll comes out beginning at 6:30 pm ET.

2. I took that poll and said I disapprove, because he's trying to hard to be "Bipartisan."
Bipartisanship with Republicans is date-rape.

6. Looks like burning down the house is not a good strategy for Rethugs.

7. Will be blamed, or will take credit? They are the minority, by a lot, and won't effect the outcome.

9. Hopefully
they will be blamed for their obstructionism and unless they vote for it, they can't take any credit.

10. The plan is working almost perfectly......
..... sure, his numbers could be better, but I firmly believe they have been working on this for months so when the time for the push comes, the GOP will come across as obstructionists. "We dont have to succeed at bipartisanship, we just have to TRY."

11. Poll
Despite all the attacks on him his approval Is at 51 Percent.53 percent voted for him.Republican
numbers are terrable.Democrats In Congress are actully more popular.Democrats still lead despite all
the Democrats bad days we keep hearing In the genetic Ballet.Although the Genetic Ballet Is worthless.
Democrats lead for years and Republicans keep the Congress.

Obama's health Care numbers have gone up.People's feelings on the economy Is going up.

While on hardball they tried to make this look bad with regard to Independents.Obama has a 51 Percent
approval yet they say Independents disaaprove more than Approve.

And with Obama's numbers do people really think Romney,or Huchabee or Palin could beat him In 2012.
