Quote of the day

“Health care’s unpopularity can be traced to the decision by the White House and its allies to allow Republicans to define it AFTER it was signed into law. Just how poorly has the White House messaged health care? Consider that 30% of Democrats say they don’t know enough about the law to have an opinion, and ‘only’ 56% of Democrats call the plan a ‘good idea’ So barely half of the president’s base calls health care a ‘good idea.’ That’s a big problem.”

From NBC’s First Read in a post about a NBC/WSJ poll showing that 44% think that the Affordable Care Act is a bad idea, while only 31% say it’s a good one.
