Rasmussen Reports released a poll on Monday indicating more than half of those surveyed are “concerned that those opposed to President Obama’s policies will resort to violence, up 10 points from last September.”

A majority of Americans oppose Obamacare and believe it gives the federal government too much power.

As should be expected in the highly divisive and polarized political climate in the U.S. — a climate encouraged by the government and corporate media — a split in the results falls along party lines.

“Seventy-one percent (71%) of Democrats are at least somewhat concerned that Obama’s policies will trigger a violent reaction. Fifty-six percent (56%) of Republicans are not concerned while unaffiliated voters are almost evenly divided on the question,” reports Rasmussen.

“Democrats in particular have raised the specter of possible violence following their passage of a national health care plan that has been consistently opposed by most voters. They raised similar concerns following the angry congressional town hall meetings last August when voters complained about the health care plan and other expensive Obama initiatives.”

Another poll shows that a majority of Americans want Obamacare repealed.

“One week after the House of Representatives passed the health care plan proposed by President Obama and congressional Democrats, 54% of the nation’s likely voters still favor repealing the new law.”

Most voters, according to the poll, are not taken by the rhetoric of Democrats. Only 17% of all voters believe the plan will achieve one of its primary goals and reduce the cost of health care. Most (55%) believe it will have the opposite affect and increase the cost of care.

A Washington Post poll produced similar results. “Americans overwhelmingly see the new health care law as a major shift in the direction of the country, but they remain as deeply divided today over the changes as they were throughout the long congressional debate,” write Jon Cohen and Dan Balz.
