The health care reform legislation that is currently stalled in Congress is deeply unpopular in New Hampshire, only 26% say
they favor the legislation, 57% oppose, and 16% are neutral or don’t know enough about it to say. Significantly, only 19%
of independents say they approve of the reform legislation being considered by Congress.

You should vote them out next election if you disagree with their decision.
The trend I'm seeing is a lack of published district-based polls, which isn't really all that surprising.
I wouldn't construe the lack of district polls to mean that a majority of representatives voted the will of their constituents
and he wouldn't need to keep trying to sell it to the American people after it has already become law.
On a personal note, Outkast, I've read a lot of your posts; haven't had time to reply to as many as I would have liked. I just wanted to say that I regret some of the name calling and insults you've had to endure. I would have expected better on ATS. But through it all you stuck to your guns and argued for what you believe is right. I disagree with you on this issue, but I respect your tenacity and character.
QUESTION: Would you favor or oppose the national government offering everyone the choice of a government administered health insurance plan -- something like the Medicare coverage that people 65 and older get -- that would compete with private health insurance plans?
14% Not Sure

I don't know the answers to these questions. (I'm not even American) I did read in the news, however, that ZERO republicans voted for the health care bill, so I strongly suspect at least some of them, maybe many or most, voted against their constituents. Zero votes by one party indicates that they voted along party lines rather than going with what their constituents want.

So, the dems that voted for it, voted along party lines the ones that voted against it voted in line with their constituents.
