Can the Democrats Sell the Public on Health Care Reform?

For many months, the polls have shown that more people oppose the Democrats' health care reform proposal than support it. President Obama's effort to persuade wavering Democrats to vote for final passage depends on the notion that if the proposal is adopted, the party will be able to sell it to the public in time to stave off huge losses in the November midterm elections. In The New Republic, John Judis and Jonathan Cohn examine recent polling that indicates that support for the measure may have increased somewhat since the health care summit, and that people are more likely to support it when its provisions are made clear to them.
