Aren't the politicians watching the polls? - 0 views

    Healthcare: At The Best 50% Approval, Now 38%
    Nothing means more to politicians than the polls. Polls are the lifeblood that let them know what they should be for, what they should be against and what they should stay away from. If some action is in the best interest of national security, but the polls say that public opinion is against it, most, not all, politicians will be swayed.
