The pub­lic’s com­mon sense ap­pears to trump White House po­lit­i­cal pos­tur­ing: a na­tional poll of 661 reg­is­tered vot­ers find that seven-out-of-10 say that a one-year de­lay for Oba­macare is a good idea. The num­bers: 55 per­cent of the vot­ers “strongly fa­vor” a de­lay in en­forc­ing the health care law’s in­di­vid­ual man­date, while 15 per­cent “some­what fa­vor” it.

Mean­while, 14 per­cent “strongly op­pose” the de­lay while 9 per­cent “some­what op­pose” it. The sur­vey was con­ducted by Pub­lic Opin­ion Strat­egy for Cross­roads Grass­roots Pol­icy Strate­gies from Oct. 27-29.

“Pres­i­dent Obama’s dra­mat­i­cally in­com­pe­tent roll­out of this law has cre­ated a sit­u­a­tion where we need to hit the pause but­ton and de­lay Oba­macare for a year,” says Cross­roads GPS com­mu­ni­ca­tions di­rec­tor Jonathan Col­le­gio. “Congress should im­me­di­ately pass, and the pres­i­dent should sign, a one year de­lay of this law. To do oth­er­wise would put pride in a failed pol­icy above com­mon sense.”
