Obama versus Majority Public Opinion

The Democrats are reluctant to admit the truth that Obama is not a smart politician (like Bill Clinton, for example). Obama is a radical ideologue determined to "transform" America into the socialist mold. Let's tick off the issues where Obama staked out his lonely position at the same time that public opinion polls showed the majority of Americans are on the other side. Obama's determination to achieve "change" doesn't include obeying the wishes of We The People.Take Obamacare, for example. Ramming it through Congress, overriding regular legislative procedure and the opposition of the American public, Obama deluded himself into believing that once it became the law of the land, the people would dutifully support it. But they didn't. Even after passage, the Rasmussen survey reports that 60% favor repeal of the Health Control Law, and 50% say repeal will benefit the economy. On August 3, 71% of voters in Missouri, the bellwether state, approved a referendum to invalidate the law's mandate to force individuals to buy health insurance. The same week, a federal judge ruled that Virginia may proceed with its lawsuit to overturn Obamacare's mandate on individuals to buy insurance.

The Democrats had hoped they could postpone Obama's commitment to Hispanic voters until after the 2010 elections by tucking the immigration issue under the rug this year. But then Obama brought the immigration issue front and center by filing suit against the Arizona law.

A Rasmussen poll found that 65% of Arizonans support that law. A CBS poll shows that 57% of Americans think Arizona's law is "about right," and
a Zogby poll reported that 58% of all Americans want their own state to adopt a law similar to Arizona's.
