Bad news for Obama in CNN weekend survey results 

CNN's Opinion Research surveyors were hard at work over the weekend during the final hours of the successful push to win House approval of the Senate version of Obamacare. The results of the CNN/OR survey are out and they point to the most vivid reality of the Obamacare victory - 219 House Democrats were willing to flout the clear majority of Americans on this issue.

Here are the major initial points of interest in the CNN/OR results:

· 59% oppose the Democrats’ health care bill, while only 39% favor it.

· 70% say the federal budget deficit will go up under the Democrats’ health care bill; only 12% believe it will go down.

· 56% say the bill creates “too much government involvement in the nation's health care system,” 28% say about the right amount, while 16% say not enough.

· 62% say they'll pay more for medical care under the Democrats’ health care bill.

· 47% say they and their families will be worse off under the Democrats’ health care bill; 33% say things will be about the same, and only 19% think they’ll be better off.

· 45% say seniors on Medicare will be worse off; 34% say things will be about the same, and only 20% think they’ll be better off.

Numbers like those suggest the unreality of the Democrats' assumption that, as the smoke clears from the debate and people become more familiar with what's actually in the bill, they will become more favorably disposed to it in the months ahead.

Go here for the full take on the CNN/OR survey.
