That’s the weakest showing since May — and a far cry from the bump proponents had hoped to see as some of the law’s more consumer-friendly provisions kick in.

    That is the same article I referred to in the original post.

    I know. I was simply pointing out how closely the pros and antis are balanced. The difference between them is not statistically different. Not exactly evidence of massive rejection.

    A quote from the last paragraph of the article...

    "While many of these provisions have proved popular in polls, the popularity of the the overhaul on the whole hasn't improved. Plus, opposition to other provisions - namely requirement that nearly all Americans buy insurance coverage - has increased. The so-called "individual mandate" was opposed by 70% of the Kaiser poll respondents."
