Massachusetts State Sponsored Health Care is a FLOP!

You won't find this story readily available in the mainstream media:

Only 26 percent of likely voters in Massachusetts believe health care reform has been a success and just 21 percent believe reform has made health care more affordable, according to newly released poll results. The Rasmussen Reports poll of 500 likely Massachusetts voters, taken in April, also found only 10 percent said the quality of health care is getting better under the reform law rules here.

No see you've got it all wrong. Once it goes nationwide the virus, I mean cure, will be spread out among more suckers, I mean people, and the waiting lists, I mean doctor's visits, will be better!

If you believe any poll that Rasmussen puts out you might as well believe in Santa Klaus.
Rasmussen is well known for it’s providing Republicans with the best polling that money can buy.
From widipedia:
Scott Rasmussen was a paid consultant for the 2004 George W. Bush campaign. Rasmussen presidential polling numbers tend to be an outlier among samples taken from other polling organizations. Others have pointed out that the reason Rasmussen’s polls trend more Republican than other mainstream polls is simply that he samples likely voters. [11] John Marshal of Talking Points Memo has said, “The toplines tend to be a bit toward the Republican side of the spectrum, compared to the average of other polls. But if you factor that in they’re pretty reliable. Networks such as MSNBC simply do not use Rasmussen polls. Conversely, conservative media frequently refers to Rasmussen, praising them for being the first to ask about a relevant issue or to ask questions that other polsters do not.

Hamster: The polls you linked to are at least a year old--public sentiment can change very rapidly and the Rasmussen polls are very recent.
Secondly, why isn't that when a poll details numbers or a trend that counters liberal arguments it is always attacked for being "Republican?" When Rasmussen had polls showing Barack Obama leading John McCain in the Presidential election I didn't see many liberals praising Rasmussen for its polls.
Lastly, the polling methods used by Rasmussen are reputable and sound. If you can prove that they are otherwise, I would be happy to consider your evidence.
