The constituent calls are running roughly 50-50 for or against the bill, the staffer estimated — which tracks pretty closely to where the American people seem to be, as a whole, at least according to the latest NBC/Wall Street Journal poll, which found the public nearly even divided, with 47 percent saying they approved as what was described as “President Obama’s health-care plan”, and 46 percent saying they disapproved. (Interestingly, only 29 percent said that a vote for the bill would reflect badly on their own member of Congress.)

Not so 50/50 on the link, as said by the above statement from a staffer for a conservative Democratic congressman, but close at some points.

"The NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll was conducted of 1,000 adults (104 reached by cell phone) from March 11, 13-14. It has an overall margin of error of plus-minus 3.1 percentage points."
You see I prefer polls that are comprised of LIKELY voters--not just those over 18, who are likely to fall into group of 66% of those who don't even bother voting--you know, when it actually counts!!!
