    Who Are the Conservative Democrats?

    Generally, the ratio of conservative white Democrats to moderate/liberal white Democrats is highest in the following groups:

    Older Americans
    Less well-educated Americans
    Lower-income Americans
    More religious Americans

    Hey Herb - that's you! :D

    The Affordable Care Act is here to stay. Post all the polls you want about how awful people think it is. The fact is, most of Obamacare hasn't affected people yet. Once the law takes effect, people will like it better and support will rise.

    Not really. Most parts of the law are already very popular in polls - if you poll the parts individually. The Mandate is the part that gets people - but once they realize that they either qualify for subsidies on the exchanges or that they already get insurance from work, they'll realize the Mandate is no big deal.

    The biggest problem with Obamacare is that many people have no idea what it really does. Given that 42% of people in a recent poll didn't even realize it was STILL THE LAW, I'd say there are a lot of uninformed people out there.

    I think many people think ObamaCare will impose a tax on them. The only ones taxed will be those who have the means to buy health insurance but choose not to.
