With Senate health care win likely, Dems now must woo public

Senate passage of a health care bill is all but certain, with the first vote starting at 7 a.m. on Tuesday ending 60-39 for the amendment. Now strategists are wondering whether Democrats can win popular support for whatever measure finally is cobbled together from House and Senate versions of the legislation. There's good news for Democrats: a CNN poll shows a six percent gain in public approval of the plan. The bad news: 56 percent of those polled still oppose it.
