Newest Poll from ABC news re Schaivo case:

70% of Americans say it is inappropriate for Congress to involve itself in the Schaivo case.

67% of Americans "think the elected officials trying to keep Schaivo alive are doing so more for political advantage than out of concern for her or for the principles allowed."

58% of Republicans, 61% of Independents, 63% of Democrats oppose the federal government's intervention in the case.

Believe it or not, 50% of evangelicals oppose federal government intervention, 46% support removing feeding tube.

Even 63% of Catholics believe Schaivo's feeding tube should be removed, 56% oppose federal intervention.

57% of Conservatives oppose federal intervention, 54% believe feeding tube should be removed.

Looks like Frist and Delay may have just succeeded in pissing off lots and lots of people, including many of their supporters. Not to mention the vast majority of Americans.

Will this lead to abject backtracking? We shall see.
