North Carolina's right wing Civitas Institute puts out a poll every month and for their most recent one they sent out press releases trumpeting Barack Obama and Bev Perdue's falling popularity and the state's support of the death penalty and banning gay marriage.
Surprisingly they didn't send out the most interesting result from the poll, which found that 46% of North Carolinians were opposed to the state joining in the anti-health care lawsuit with only 40% of voters supportive of it. It's not that they got some strangely progressive sample, as 52% of the folks they polled expressed opposition to the recently passed health care bill while only 37% said they supported it.
This goes to what we've talked about repeatedly- voters are sick of the health care issue and even a decent portion of those opposed to the bill just want it to go away. They don't want Republicans to keep on dragging it out, even in a relatively conservative state like North Carolina.
The GOP really has a choice on health care- if they stop pushing on it now they will clearly have scored a victory on the issue. But if they keep up with lawsuits and repeal talk they risk having the tide turn against them by antagonizing voters who just want it to go away.
