News this morning gas prices and health gas Scott Rasmussen joins us now with a -- on both.
First of all.
Deal I think you've done some polling on -- whether or not we've grown into a like Obama camp in the last two years when they show.
Well first store I have to tell you that on Tiger Woods -- reflected the views of women everywhere he gets lower favorable among women and among men all across the board now is your question -- many.
And when we start talking about the president's health care law 56%.
Want to see it repealed today.
Right after it was passed 54%.
Wanted to see it repealed.
Support for this law has not changed at all.
Republicans and unaffiliated voters want to see it -- Democrats still like it seniors hate it more than any other age group.
And they're the ones who -- the doctors more often than anybody else.
All right 62%.
Think that Obama -- will force employers to drop.
Health coverage is that's -- Poland thank.
That is and it's been one of the other things been fascinating about -- Democrats have never quite -- How strong the fear of losing your -- your current coverage is in fact.
It plurality of Democrats think workers -- be better off if they were thrown off a private employer backed insurance program and put onto a government health care program.
That's would Democrats think Republicans and unaffiliated voters say no they'd be a lot worse off if they left the private insurance market.
-- you do you got to pulse here with just suggests that obamacare is a losing issue at this point it is politically financially.
Health wise this thing -- flying right now disease.
It is not in fact I would say that the only question about this law.
Is how it eventually gets overturned will be in the Supreme Court we'll be right after next year's election or will be a few years down the road.
It is flying in the face of public opinion on just about every point.
OK let's move on the gas prices as you've heard -- still going up 389 as the national average for regular now.
I'd have you done any polling on the popularity or otherwise of offshore drilling or increasing drilling generally.
To try to get prices down any polls on that.
Absolutely six out of ten people believe if you would open up some offshore drilling the price of gas would go down 67%.
Favor offshore drilling that's near the highest level we've seen.
-- got to understand though even in the immediate aftermath of the gulf oil spill couple years ago and majority still supported more offshore drilling.
And no matter how we frame it.
People want us to find more energy sources 70%.
Say we're not doing enough to develop those resources.
And a majority by the way even believe.
The fracking hydraulic fracturing.
Can be done in a manner that protects the environment they'd like more exploration there.
That's it extorting the two main issues of this day and indeed this political season Obama cap.
And drilling and gas prices on both issues the public opposes.
President Obama's position that's interesting.
It is -- -- thing and it -- it was -- issue we watched in 2008.
President Obama backed off his position our offshore drilling as the Election Day grew closer and John McCain was making some headway on it.
It wouldn't surprise me at all if the president gracefully walks back off the limb again on oil prices not sure don't make any changes on health care.
Last one I think you have a daily tracking poll I think you do tracking reassured group I know you -- to.
-- attacking governor Romney against President Obama if the election were held today -- tomorrow what's the latest.
Right now governor Romney is down by three points 46% to 43%.
The other Republicans all -- the president by a bit more.
Romney and Obama have been within a couple points each other for the last two or three weeks very much a toss up at this point -- Scott Rasmussen.
You're right on with that the two major issues of the day Obama cat.
Gas prices and the election as well great stuff from Monday morning thank you Scott appreciate it.
Thanks -- -- -- Tiger Woods.
