Michael van der Galien was born in the Dutch city of Leeuwarden in 1984. For as long as he can remember, he has been obsessed with the United States. When he was 17 years old, he started blogging - of course about America. His articles have been published at Big Hollywood, Pajamas Media, Hot Air (the GreenRoom) and Right Across The Atlantic. He's also an editor for the Dutch conservative blog, De Dagelijkse Standaard.

Pollster Scott Rasmussen has been testing the attitudes of likely voters toward the Democrats’ government medicine plans since June. In general, opposition to those plans hardened through the summer and early fall and has been strong since. Last week there was a slight uptick in support for government medicine, but this week’s survey, just out, suggests that that was only random variation.

In this week’s poll, likely voters oppose the Democrats’ plans (the final version of which is still unknown) by a solid 55-40 percent. The reasons are not hard to find: by better than three to one, 57-17 percent, voters think the Democrats’ schemes will raise costs, not lower them. And 52 percent think they will also reduce the quality of medical care.
