One the other debates that you've heard here on this program -- among these lawmakers this morning is this.
Should congress be acting now on health -- is this something that really should be on the table right now.
Or isn't it should they do nothing.
Well we asked and you answered we've got some really should poll numbers hot off the -- this is Fox News opinion dynamics look at this 50% of you.
Say congress should do nothing right now on health care that is down from 54% in December.
Say congress should pass a bill this year and that is up from 41% in December Dana Blanton is director.
My guess now -- -- Dana.
But still people that when they move on to the next topic -- getting back to the summit but.
But this is interesting so people who say 50% say do nothing but the numbers are rising on those who want something done this year something.
Right it's gone back and forth these numbers today are back to where we saw them about -- -- -- when we first asked this question just.
22 answers do nothing in -- past what's out there.
So it's bounced around I'm looking out there -- brass something has something a pass something because that's a thing I was talking a Linda -- about right now I -- I cited the latest Fox News -- CNN polls right the Fox -- full from the beginning of this month and in the CNN poll from yesterday says 73%.
Rate of people say -- the -- It's not that they don't necessarily want anything done is that they don't want this bill right.
And she said she has seen other polling that suggests people do want this -- right pat have you seen any polling I cast that now that doesn't mean it's not out there I haven't what I've seen is when they asked about individual pieces -- they take.
One aspect of the bill you might get majority supporting this -- that but.
Our polling and others consistently we found.
People doubt that the quality of their care will be better Italy there being no better or worse.
They think the costs will go up every they just don't see the -- and that's why we find 50% or better usually saying.
I oppose what's being proposed and talked about -- congress right now -- -- President Obama is even though he is well liked by the American people his is numbers when it comes to health care right are not going in the right direction -- your polling you have new polling on the right.
We found that he has -- worst approval rating on the city's ever had now 56%.
Of Americans disapprove of the job he's doing.
That's -- nineteen percentage points higher than the 37%.
But we asked a series of issues.
This he -- -- he does worse only on one issue he gets worse on the federal deficit were only 31% approve of the job he's doing so.
Not only is this the worst ever that he's -- on this.
It's about one of the worst topics -- us and we're gonna see more polling I guess on this after the -- to see how it affected things yes yes it works well.
Dana Blanton thanks so much for being here you'll appreciate it would -- -- me now.
