Poll: preserving existing coverage trumps public option

A new Rasmussen poll shows that 63% believe that guaranteeing that no one will be forced to change their health coverage is more important than a public option. Only 29% take the opposite view. Also a majority believe (correctly) that they personally would be forced to change their health coverage if the Democrats’ health plan passes.┬áIt’s not hard to see why a majority oppose the plan.

POSTSCRIPT: President Obama has been trying hard to convince the public that no one will lose their existing coverage, much as he has been trying hard to convince the public that his plan will not cover illegal immigrants and will not result in “death panels”. In each case, the public simply does not believe him.
