Will Brad Ellsworth Ignore Indiana Public Opinion . . . Again?


Rep. Brad Ellsworth, a Democrat, wants to be the next senator from the state of Indiana. He voted for the Democrats’ health-care bill back in November.

One has to wonder if he’s eager to vote “yes” again.

Rasmussen, back in January:

Generally speaking, do you strongly favor, somewhat favor, somewhat oppose or strongly oppose the health care reform plan proposed by President Obama and the congressional Democrats?

16% Strongly favor
21% Somewhat favor
12% Somewhat oppose
48% Strongly oppose
3% Not sure

Archduke Czar Viscount Earl Pasha Baron Hill voted yes, too, and he’s trailing in his reelection bid by 8 percentage points.
