The new CBS/New York Times poll not only shows overwhelming support for the public option — including a plurality of self-identified Republicans.

Among Democrats only, it’s 81%-12%, and independents are at 61%-30%. And among Republican respondents, 47% are in favor, to 42% opposed. – Drudge Report
