previous post on the Nebraska Governor's race, we referenced the Rasmussen Reports poll which took a snapshot of Nebraska on a few issues.
The one we didn't address (because, frankly, it was Saturday afternoon) was the poll numbers on Nebraskans' view on the Health Care Re-form bill rolling through Congress. It looks like this:
Nebraska's view on the current Congressional Health Care Reform Plan
In favor: 32%
Strongly favor: 12%
Strongly oppose: 51%
Compare this to the 52% of Americans as a whole who oppose the Health Care bill and you get an idea where Nebraskans stand.
And beyond the numbers, we juxtapose this poll with the random statements of Nebraska's Senior U.S. Senator.
He will say that he is "listening" to Nebraskans.
He will tell you that he has heard from Nebraskans.
He will tell you that Nebraskans want hope and change and a chicken in every pot.
But if he votes for it (again), he won't be representing the majority of Nebraskans. But then maybe he just doesn't care about that.
And while we would like to see the breakdown by Congressional district, Rasmussen reports that 61% of Nebraskans disapprove of President Obama's performance. 47% strongly disapprove (compared to 41% strongly disapproving nationally).
And just in case any is wondering, Tom White and Mark Lakers are both Obama guys.
Wonder if anyone will mention that during the campaigns?
