Health Reform Gaining

As this poll of polls shows, if Obama keeps up his performances like yesterday and campaigns like this day after day after day, the first poll - from YouGov/The Economist - showing a clear 53- 47 majority in favor of his reform will become a harbinger of the future. The data is already there that passing this will help the Democrats against the Republicans this fall, if you can get past the Washington bullshit. The last month has been clearly a net positive in public opinion.

Moreover, Obama's strategy of exposing the nihilism and obstructionism of the GOP is working. One YouGov question asked: How much do you think President Obama is trying to work with Republicans in Congress? 48 percent said a great deal or a fair amount. Compare it to this: How much do you think the Republicans in Congress are trying to work with President Obama? 28 percent said a great deal or a fair amount. 60 percent said not much or not at all.

Know hope.
