President Obama has accused the Republican party of manufacturing the public resistance displayed at the recent health care town halls. According to liberals, the American people are for national health care. There is supposedly a silent majority not reflected in the town halls that is actually in favor of Obama’s Socialist agenda. However, a new poll Gallup seems to say otherwise. The American people oppose Obama’s health care plan by a pretty substantial margin.

According to the new Gallup poll, forty-three percent of people say they approve of how the President’s handling health care. 49 percent are opposed.

Basically, there has been no real public support for Obama’s health care plan despite the town halls and television specials dedicated to “educating the American people.” Obama, the master of media manipulation, probably thought he could use his power of persuasion to create a ground swell of support for his plan.

However, so far, no real public support as materialized. Liberals probably believe this is due to “lies” being spread by conservatives. The truth is, we live in a conservative nation. Democrats only took over due to extraordinary circumstances. Now, the people are starting to turn around.

The new Gallup poll was conducted August 6-9, after the Congressional summer recess began. One thousand and ten people were questioned by telephone for the Gallup poll.

President Obama, the people are against you. Will you still try to cram this Socialist plan down America’s throat against its will? Or will you respect the will of the people?
