From the new NBC/Wall Street Journal poll, released tonight:

From what you have heard about Barack Obama’s health care plan, do you think his plan is a good idea or a bad idea?  If you do not have an opinion either way, please just say so.

Good idea ………………….. 36

Bad idea ……………………. 48

Do not have an opinion … 15

Not sure …………………… 1

Do you think it would be better to pass Barack Obama’s health care plan and make its changes to the health care system or to not pass this plan and keep the current health care system?

Better to pass this plan, make these changes …  46

Better to not pass this plan, keep current system  45

Neither (VOL) ………………………………………………….  4

Not sure ………………………………………………………….  5

In both cases, there was a slight move of five points in the pro-Obama direction from the last time the poll asked the same question in January.
