This morning CNN released the results of a new poll following Obama’s address to a joint session of Congress last night for his 28th speech on health care reform.
WASHINGTON (CNN) — Two out of three Americans who watched President Barack Obama’s health care reform speech Wednesday night favor his health care plans — a 14-point gain among speech-watchers, according to a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation national poll of people who tuned into Obama’s address Wednesday night to a joint session of Congress.
“Sixty-seven percent of people questioned in the survey say the support Obama’s health care reform proposals that the president outlined in his address, with 29 percent opposed. Those figures are almost identical to a poll conducted immediately after Bill Clinton’s health care speech before Congress in September, 1993,” reports CNN Politcs.com.
A 14-point gain in favorableness after just one speech? Hmm…who did CNN poll anyway? The sampling is of course at the end of the article.
“The sample of speech-watchers in this poll was 45 percent Democratic and 18 percent Republican.”
