Poll: 45 Pct of Americans Want to Cancel Rest of Stimulus

A new Rasmussen poll out this morning shows finds that 45 percent of Americans favor canceling the rest of the stimulus money, compared to just 36 percent who disagree and 20 percent who aren’t sure (the question was phrased, “about $36 billion of the approved new government spending has already been spent. Should the rest of the new government spending be cancelled?”)

Some other numbers:

–Only 31 peercent of respondents said that government spending creates jobs, compared to 48 percent who think it doesn’t.

— 39 percent said speeding up the deployment of the stimulus money will be good for the economy, compared to 44 percent who say it would be bad.

It’s worth putting some degree of caution on these numbers because ever since the stimulus debate started at the beginning of this year, Rasmussen’s numbers have tended to show less support for it than has been reflected in other polls. With that said, as I wrote yesterday, I think that there’s ample reason to believe the White House is starting to get worried about public skepticism of the administration’s signature legislation to date.
