Commentary
(57%) of "U.S. Citizens" in this ZEUS American poll of 1,523 respondents "would like to see a conclusion to the health care debate sooner than later."
This 'rangy' desire to "see a conclusion to the health care debate --sooner" fits in generally with the huge health care vote (March 21, 2010) and U.S. President Barack Obama's desire to see the vote achieve a least (50%) plus one. Momentum appears to be in the President's wake as vote time emerges and a clear majority of U.S. Citizens are desirous of "a conclusion to the health care debate"/-AND arrived at this conclusion -- we believe --through passion, politicals, and sheer fatigue. "I would like to see an end to the health care (issue)--people need health care they can afford why not give it to them" -- to "This is simply the right thing for America to do" and "Oh yea I'm sick of it -- get on with it."
The health care debate has been so fierce and up and down that at this juncture many Americans simply don't know who do believe anymore--are tired and are at some level hoping Obama has success even if they aren't sure why.
Those respondents who "would not like to see a conclusion to the health care debate sooner than later" -- are clearly more unified than the majority respondents--and anecdote supports this theory clearly. "Obama is going to bankrupt us like Greece" "Obama is following the Europeans and their socialist medicine right into the ground" "You're Canadian why don't you ask others Canadians what they think of government health care--not too much I bet." These anti Obama health care respondents don't want a conclusion "to the health care debate" because they are aware of the implications of a "sooner" conclusion--an Obama health care plan in motion.
Like heavyweight boxer Muhammad Ali -- U.S. President Obama and Democratic loyalists like Speaker of the House -- Nancy Pelosi -- have endured a heavy battle over American health care--that has raged on and been under sharp protest from many different political demographics//but survived the deafening pressure, endured the frustration, and are closing in on some success with power and confidence Over the course of this ZEUS poll President Obama has taken the bull by the horns and is whipping his bill hard -- make no mistake -- his presidency hangs in the balance.
At the end of the day right now in the United States Obama plus Washington is getting more support than Insurance and Washington. The Tea Party may have served the Republicans in some respects in resisting the Obama health care plan--overall however they clouded any message from the GOP on health care and ironically this may be why the President will win the day.
This ZEUS poll does not suggest by any stretch of the imagination that the debate is over on health care even if the vote this Sunday is successful for President Obama. It does suggest however that if Obama does get his numbers on Sunday -- he is certainly in the driver's seat politically to achieve success on this historic health care deal.
Has U.S. foreign policy in Iraq been successful -- look at these numbers -- //as Gomer Pyle would say "Surprise - surprise."
Another great ZEUS poll of: 1,523 "U.S. Citizens" through random telephone calling (56%) of those telephoned were willing to take the polling questions--between March 12-18, 2010. Margin of error (2.85% - 3.53%) through computer generated moe based on sample size and other averaging and adjustments for demographics.
