Poll: Obamacare opposition hits new high -- 58 percent opposed 

No silver lining to be found in this Rasmussen result:

Many have questioned whether those who favor or oppose the health care plan in Congress really know what’s in it. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey suggests that they have a decent understanding of the bill and that voter attitudes towards the legislation have hardened.

While several individual components of the plan are popular, reminding voters of what’s included in the plan has virtually no impact on support for the overall legislation. This suggests that there are not major surprises in the legislation that will cause people to change their opinion of it.

Thirty-nine percent (39%) of voters nationwide support the plan, and 58% are opposed. That’s consistent with our weekly tracking of the issue which has found support between 38% and 41% every week from just before Thanksgiving to the end of 2009.

The new figures include 19% who Strongly Favor the plan and 46% who Strongly Oppose it.

Once again, the subset of those who "strongly oppose" the legislation outstrips the total number of people who are in favor of it.
