Tim Graham seems to prefer his voters to be stupid and uninformed.
In a Feb. 22 NewsBusters post, Graham complains about a Newsweek poll that asked about Obama's health care reform plan without describing its contents, and found that a near-majority was opposed to it. Then, when respondents were informed about the contents of the plan, more supported the plan than opposed it.
This was a "push poll," Graham huffed: "It’s just like Newsweek calling up people and insisting they should really support ObamaCare, because it embraces abstract liberal principles like requiring insurance companies to insure everyone."
Why does Graham prefer to scaremonger about health care reform? Because people actually like what's in it once you tell them.
