I guess that most Americans are just wrong and we need Obama to correct us, right?

“Although a small majority favors abortion rights, allowing the use of public money for the procedure under a national health care plan, which has been a matter of some dispute in both houses of Congress, is extremely unpopular,” said Pat Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.

The poll of likely voters showed 72 percent said they oppose allowing abortions to be paid for with public funds under any new health care system created by the government.

Quinnipiac asked respondents: “Do you support or oppose allowing abortions to be paid for by public funds under a health care reform bill?”

Just 23 percent supported the idea, and 5 percent did not know.

The strong opposition carried across all political parties. Self-described Republicans predictably opposed public funding for abortions in the largest numbers, with 91 percent saying they would not support it and just 5 percent in favor of the idea. But self-described Independents also opposed the idea by a margin of 74 percent to 23 percent. Democrats, too, opposed using public funds, albeit by a slimmer 54 percent to 38 percent majority.
