Gallup was careful to warn people against reading too deeply into the new numbers.

The 49% of Americans who today say passage of healthcare reform was a good thing, compared with 46% calling it a bad thing, is a bit more positive than the two prior readings in which the slight plurality called it a bad thing," Gallup notes. "However, the four percentage-point increase since April in favorability toward the law, from 45% to 49%, is not statistically significant.

However, aggregate polling data finds that, overall, health care reform has been getting noticeably more popular, and opposition is the lowest it's been in months. Ezra Klein at the Washington Post noted, "the bill's spread looks better than at any point in the past year."
