Betsy Markey, Colorado Democrat, said she’ll vote for the health-care bill; she was a “no” last fall.
Here’s what a survey of 400 likely voters conducted March 16 by Pulse Opinion Research found:
1) 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
23% Strongly favor
13% Somewhat favor
11% Somewhat oppose
52% Strongly oppose
2% Not sure
2) Would you be more likely to support a candidate who votes for the healthcare plan proposed
by President Obama or less likely to support a candidate who votes for the healthcare plan
proposed by President Obama?
32% More likely
61% Less likely
4% It has not impact on your vote
3% Not sure
3) If your Congressman, Democrat Betsy Markey, votes in favor of the Obama healthcare
proposal how likely are you to vote for her in the next election?
28% Very likely
10% Somewhat likely

Judging from these numbers, and the likely consequence of her “yes” vote, you might suspect she doesn’t really want to keep her current job.
