Polling for Purity

What an interesting poll from Public Policy Polling:

Most Americans think incoming Congressmen who campaigned against the health care bill should put their money where their mouth is and decline government provided health care now that they’re in office. Only 33% think they should accept the health care they get for being a member of Congress while 53% think they should decline it and 15% have no opinion.

Meh…this is just those damn trouble making Democrats, trying to pwn the Teabagger brigade.

Oh…wait:

Democrats are actually the most supportive of anti-health care Congressmen taking their health care, with 40% saying they should accept it to 46% who think they should decline. But Republicans and independents- who put these folks in office in the first place- strongly think they should refuse their government provided health care. GOP voters hold that sentiment by a 58/28 margin and indys do 56/27.

Man…something tells me that the Republican base and Republican-leaning independents are in for a huge disappointment!
