August Was Not So Bad for the White House

Charles Franklin looks at the polling data and sees a very different picture of how the August town hall meetings impacted the Obama administration's health care reform efforts.

"A bump here and a drop there, and the precise estimates of support and opposition differ by as much as 2 points up or down. But the big picture is that opposition ramped up significantly through June or July but has recently slowed or stopped. Support fell less precipitously but has been working back up for a month (despite or perhaps because of the circus coverage in August.)"
