Americans are “on board” Obamacare. They really are . . . or not.

Democrats and Leftists can explain away the strong opposition to Obamacare all they want. But how to explain away this?:

American voters, by a 55 - 35 percent margin, are more worried that Congress will spend too much money and add to the deficit than it will not act to overhaul the health care system, according to a Quinnipiac University national poll released today. By a similar 57 - 37 percent margin, voters say health care reform should be dropped if it adds “significantly” to the deficit.

By a 72 - 21 percent margin, voters do not believe that President Barack Obama will keep his promise to overhaul the health care system without adding to the deficit, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University national poll finds.

American voters disapprove 52 - 39 percent of the way President Obama is handling health care, down from 46 - 42 percent approval July 1, with 60 - 34 percent disapproval from independent voters.

The numbers are overwhelming and a bit hard to argue with. No wonder Obama, Emanuel, and Pelosi tried to ram Obamacare through before Congressmen went home on recess to get an earful from constituents.

But those are just angry extremist mobs. The American people really are “on board” Obamacare, right? Right?
