Ryan Plan Doesn’t Poll Well (and Bad Numbers for Obama as well)
Specifically, in a likely voter poll, the plan gets 48% approval, which is roughly similar to national support of the PPACA. However, unlike the PPACA, when specific elements are polled about about the Ryan plan, support goes down. Indeed, post description of the plan’s details, support drops to 36%, with only 19% strongly favoring.
Now, granted, Democracy Corps is the Carville/Greemberg group, and therefore the poll is from a pro-Democratic firm, so one can take the numbers as one wills.
Still, the poll also shows bad news for Obama including a 65% “wrong track” number, a 44% approval rating for the president, and a +2 advantage for generic Republican over generic Democrat for the 2012 Congressional elections. It also show Romney with a +2 advantage head-to-head with Obama.
