Health overhaul splits party faithful

Wall Street Journal, March 17, 2010

The pending healthcare overhaul remains unpopular with a broad portion of the public, but core Democrats remain strong backers, a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll finds. The survey found that 48% called the healthcare legislation a "bad idea" and 36% viewed it as a "good idea" when presented with a choice between those two. However, Democratic voters strongly favor the legislation being pushed by President Barack Obama.
