ObamaCare Getting Killed on Twitter: Opponents Outnumber Supporters Seven to One

Is social media helping drive the continually growing negative opinion of ObamaCare?

A new study finds that negative comments on Twitter about the President's healthcare plan outnumber positive comments by seven to one.

As Businessweek reported Monday, Kantar Media's CMAG has produced a new Twitter tracking tool that provides real time data on what people are tweeting about ObamaCare.

At press time, here's how it looked:

So, in the last 30 days, there have been 6,000 negative tweets about ObamaCare to only 811 positive.

The tracker also provides a map of the activity:

Of course, this only shows tweets that have a geotag attached to them. That said, ObamaCare sure does attract a lot of attention in the south.

What does this all mean?

Let's be honest: six thousand negative tweets in a month is not all that much.

I bet Bill Maher easily receives that many hate-tweets every 30 days.

But it's a start.
