• It doesn’t say no

Over the weekend CNN reported that 46 percent of Americans supported the Supreme Court’s 5-4 ruling on Obamacare and 46 percent disagreed with it. This was according to a USA Today/Gallup poll taken the day after the Court announced its ruling.

The result, a snapshot of the national reaction to Thursday’s ruling before anyone had had much time to think about it, is interesting for one reason: On Tuesday CNN had reported the findings of another poll, this one from NBC News/Wall Street Journal. It found that 28 percent of Americans said they’d be pleased if the Court ruled Obamacare constitutional, and 35 percent said they’d be disappointed.

That’s a big swing in four days. What happened?
