77% Support CHOICE of Public Option

So much for that NBC/Wall Street Journal poll that I didn't trust.

From Sam Stein:

More than three out of every four Americans feel it is important to have a "choice" between a government-run health care insurance option and private coverage, according to a public opinion poll released on Thursday.
A new study by SurveyUSA puts support for a public option at a robust 77 percent, one percentage point higher than where it stood in June.
But the numbers tell another story, as well.
Earlier in the week, after pollsters for NBC dropped the word "choice" from their question on a public option, they found that only 43 percent of the public were in favor of "creating a public health care plan administered by the federal government that would compete directly with private health insurance companies."

Obama would have tons of support if from the beginning had called it medicare 2 instead of calling it public option.Most people know what medicare is and their wouldn't be these false claims the republicans keep making because all you would be doing is extending medicare not writing a new 1,000 page law.NBC like the MSM always likes to do nowadays is creating news instead of covering it
