Mark Blumenthal of Pollster.com (where I frequently cross-post) has a new NationalJournal.com column discussing my claim that myths about health care reform are unlikely to be dispelled by November. Here's how it begins:
Last week, Indiana Sen. Evan Bayh said Democrats are betting that perceptions of the health care reform bill will improve once it is enacted. "That is the bet," Bayh told Charlie Rose, "that some of the misconceptions out there will be proven to be false between now and the election."
That's likely a "bad bet," as University of Michigan political scientist Brendan Nyhan wrote on Wednesday.
