About six in ten Americans continue to express support for the so-called “public option” –- which the Senate appears to have sidelined for now. Views on this haven’t changed recently. As was the case last month, Democrats favor it and Republicans are opposed.

Favor 59% 61%
Oppose 29 28

Uh huh. Then how do you explain that in a recent CBS poll, 49%are against compared to only36% for Obamacare? You can spin things all you want but just because people favor a public option(we'll get to this in a second), doesn't mean that they favor the crap that's being shoved down their throats. As for the public OPTION, they favor just that. An option. What you're ilk wants is not an option but total control. Now, go back and poll that same group of people and ask them if they favor the government plan being the only option and tell me how that poll works out.Deplorably Proud To Be An American

The "public option" is simply the means to destroy private health insurance. It's a step in the road to single-payer.

But as both sides of the debate have dug in to assert their positions
this fall, the public’s views on the impact of reform remain steady
and skeptical: few Americans think they’ll personally be helped by the
reforms, and more than twice as many more think they’ll be hurt, while
four in ten foresee no impact.
HOW WOULD PROPOSED CHANGES AFFECT YOU PERSONALLY?
Now 11/2009 10/2009
Would help 16% 19% 18%
Would hurt 34 34 31
No effect 42 41 45
Not sure 8 6 6
"In England a king hath little more to do than to make war and give away places; which in plain terms, is to impoverish the nation and set it together by the ears. A pretty business indeed for a man to be allowed eight hundred thousand sterling a year for, and worshipped into the bargain! Of more worth is one honest man to society and in the sight of God, than all the crowned ruffians that ever lived."
