New York Times/CBS poll: Obamacare definitely not getting any more popular

It’s looking like the Supreme Court would be doing Obama re-election hopes a favor by flushing this thing down, even though Nancy Pelosi’s constitutional expertise leads her to believe it will be upheld 6-3.

From the New York Times:

More than two-thirds of Americans hope the Supreme Court will overturn some or all of the 2010 health care law, according to a new poll conducted by The New York Times and CBS News. Just 24 percent said they hoped the court “would keep the entire health care law in place.”

The Supreme Court is expected to decide a challenge to the law by the end of this month.

Only 43 percent of Democrats said all of the law should be upheld.

Another way to look at it is that Obamacare in its entirety has roughly the same approval rating as Richard Nixon did around the time he resigned.

And just think, by design, the health care law was front-loaded so some “good stuff” was delivered in this election year, with the bill coming due much later. Imagine how unpopular this thing will be in a year or two if it isn’t overturned by the Supreme Court or wiped out by a Republican president or Congress.

Other things on today’s “bad news” list for the current administration include Romney outraising Obama by almost $17 million in May (last best hope: Sarah Jessica Parker).

Also, a new poll shows Romney barely edging out Obama in… Michigan.
