Protest Popular, Obama Losing Favor

August 20th, 2009 by flanews

Florida voters consider town hall protests patriotic and are giving the president his lowest approval rating in since he took office, according to a Quinnipiac Poll released Thursday.

47 percent of people polled say President Barack Obama is doing a good job, down from 58 percent in June. Florida voters support creating a government health insurance plan nearly six to one, but Pollster Peter Brown says respondents believe a total health care overhaul would increase the national deficit.

Voters in Florida are more concerned that the health care solution will increase the deficit substantially than that nothing will get done. In other words they seem to be saying they would rather not have an increases in the deficit even if that means theres no health care overhaul package, said Brown.

According to the poll released today, six out of every 10 Florida voters dont think Democrats in Congress should use their majority to push health care reform through without support from Republicans.
