Who says the Democrats haven’t moved public opinion in the health care debate? According to a new Rasmussen poll out today, they have steadily persuaded more and more Americans that the health care system we have is a good one.

Forty-nine percent (49%) of voters nationwide now rate the U.S. health care system as good or excellent. That marks a steady increase from 44% at the beginning of October, 35% in May and 29% a year-and-a-half ago.

This surely isn’t how the Democrats want to see public opinion moving, but it’s how they have been moving it. By comparison with the system envisioned in the House and Senate health care bills, our current system certainly does look excellent.
