Obama’s Anti-Supreme Court Rhetoric Likely To Fall Flat
At least that’s the conclusion I draw from this Rasmussen poll:
While President Obama cautioned the U.S. Supreme Court this past week about overturning his national health care law, just 15% of Likely U.S. Voters think the high court puts too many limitations on what the federal government can do.
In fact, a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that twice as many–30%– believe the Supreme Court does not limit the government enough. Forty percent (40%) say the balance is about right, while 15% more are undecided.
Obama may think that his mad speechifying skillz will make people turn against the Supreme Court if they overturn ObamaCare, but his mad skillz are highly overrated, especially by Obama himself. He hasn’t managed to convince people to love his signature achievement, ObamaCare yet, as well as a lot of other things that Obama hasn’t been able to convince the American voting public to support yet.
In fact, it’s likely to backfire on Obama, because as we see above, twice as many people think the Supreme Court doesn’t limit government enough, and even more people think that the balance is about right
Just another political fight that he didn’t have to get into, and is probably going to lose.
