Brett -- President Obama is lying low today taking a day off from his increasingly pitched battle to get Health Care Reform on the books.
But as the White House searches for a message that will stop the negative momentum.
New poll numbers indicate that fewer Americans than ever are buying what the president is selling.
Correspondent -- brain takes a look.
He was endured by crowds on the campaign trail.
But the reality of trying to push through a major overhaul of the US health care system has crowds of a different kind showing up to voice -- opinions on President Obama and his Health Care Reform plans.
That's a really a big problem for for a president who was persuasive but suddenly.
Half the country to fight -- don't trust.
For decades the Health Care Reform message has been an altruistic one coverage for all.
But polling shows 91% of Americans have health insurance and 84% of them rated as good or excellent.
Not the most receptive audience when you're trying to sell remaking the American health care system as we know it.
Health care is as deeply personal and powerful and issues you're gonna get.
You can't tell the American people who many of whom have insurance.
Exactly what's in it for them that they're gonna get taking care -- first.
They're gonna get security and stability out of this -- you can actually generate the political will to cover the uninsured.
Bring new polling numbers quantify the growing skepticism over proposals being floated by the president and fellow Democrats on Capitol Hill.
Rasmussen Reports has been tracking public support since June finding a steady drop to today's all time low of just 42% of Americans in favor of the plants.

After -- misled me on the stimulus nephew misled me on your other promises that I'm gonna be misled on this -- -- the credibility of the administration is suffering mightily.
The president's top pollster Jill -- and revealed some internal strategy when he spoke before the economic club of Canada earlier this summer.
Noting that -- search told the White House that people hate insurance companies still the debate was refocused campaigning -- companies as the bad guys.
We'll still that message does not appear to be resonating with the American public either Brett.
OK Shannon thank you.
