Americans Still Trust Dems over GOP on Health Care

    For shame! You not only conflate the GOP and conservative commentators, but the link does not contain any such claim. I don’t think that the GOP as a whole claims health care before the ACA was basically in good shape — just Google “republican health care proposals”. Iagree that the GOP would be better off promoting it’s alternatives than attacking ACA, which seems destined to fail without outside help.

      Indeed Andrew. I think WRM would help much if he made mentions of all of the ideas proposed by the Republicans. The GOP does a lousy job at propagating them but they have an enormous hurdle with the media and WRM would serve all better if at least the outline of those ideas were presented in blogs such as this.

    So…. don’t trust the government to handle health care.

    Simple enough.

    Americans don’t know whom they trust or what they want. If they did, then it would not be possible to produce so many widely divergent polls using such small sample sizes. There are 300+ million Americans. The central limit theorem is not infinitely elastic. When polls start appearing with sample sizes of 10 million, then I might be more inclined to take them seriously. But probably not, because any poll that asks a question like “Who do you trust more on health care, the Democrats or Republicans?” simply begs not to be taken seriously.
