Obama’s popularity is down 11 points

Health care reform debate is hurting the President

The hysterical debate over health care reform in the United States seems to be taking a toll on Barack Obama’s popularity.

And the scary ads about “government run” health care seem to finding a soft-target in the elderly—in June seniors were evenly split on the plan, now a strong majority oppose it.
