Public Opinion Jumps After Presidential Address
Speech a hit with audience. CNN: “About one in seven people who watched the speech changed their minds on Obama’s health care plan. ‘Going into the speech, a bare majority of his audience — 53 percent — favored his proposals. Immediately after the speech, that figure rose to 67 percent,’ says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland.”
MyDD reports on similar results from Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research focus groups: “Support for the President’s healthcare plan jumped noticeably, from 46 percent before the speech to 66 percent after the speech.”
