(AMERICAN SPECTATOR) — Something remarkable happened at the Democratic National Convention earlier this month. After three years of reeling from the political damage wrought by Obamacare, which stroked even Massachusetts with a red brush, Democrats stood up and defended their law. Patients with pre-existing conditions took to the podium. Health secretary Kathleen Sebelius had a prime speaking slot. The delegates wore “Obamacare as [a] badge of honor,” as Greg Sargent gushed.

But then something even more remarkable happened. Despite the Democrats’ collective bear hug, the polls didn’t budge. And they still haven’t. According to a Rasmussen survey taken last week, likely voters favor repealing Obamacare by 11 points. The numbers have been fairly static for two years.
