He can't keep quiet anymore

Where’s the mandate?

Interesting results in CNN poll during yesterday’s debate:

20. As you may know, the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate are trying to pass final legislation that would make major changes in the country’s health care system. Based on what you
have read or heard about that legislation, do you generally favor it or generally oppose it?

Mar 19-21 2010

Favor 39%
Oppose 59%
No opinion 2%

21. (IF OPPOSE) Do you oppose that legislation because you think its approach toward health care is too liberal, or because you think it is not liberal enough?

QUESTIONS 20 AND 21 COMBINED

Mar 19-21 2010

Favor (from Question 20) 39%
Oppose, too liberal 43%
Oppose, not liberal enough 13%
No opinion 5%

Is there anything in our history to compare to passage of a highly significant piece of legislation that was so unpopular?  The only thing that comes to mind is the Kansas-Nebraska Act.
