Poll after poll shows that despite the health care bill passing, the American public is still not keen on the bill. The latest poll from Associated Press finds that 50 percent of Americans oppose the bill, with 39 percent approving. This is quite the change since just a few weeks ago when the bill was initially signed.
Public approval doesn’t usually drop once legislation is passed. After a bill is passed, it has a tendency to gain support. Instead, the public has grown more wary of what’s in the bill. Only 28 percent of those polled actually understood the bill. Considering the amount of people it will effect and the amount of time Congress and the President had to explain it, this doesn’t bode well.
