Falling Support for “Stimulus” Plan
by

Oops.  The president’s poll numbers continue to slide.  Remember the “stimulus” bill.  So do the American people–and not fondly.

Explains Rasmussen Reports:

Confidence in the $787-billion economic stimulus plan proposed by President Obama and passed by Congress in February continues to fall.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that only 25% of U.S. voters now say the stimulus plan has helped the economy. That’s a six-point drop from a month ago.

Thirty-one percent (31%) say the stimulus actually hurt the economy, little changed from a month ago. However, this is the first poll showing that more voters believe the plan hurt rather than helped.

A plurality (36%) says the plan has had no impact.

Just after Congress passed the plan, 34% said it would help the economy, 32% that it would hurt and 26% predicted no impact.

The Democrats want a second “stimulus” bill?  Let’s see them try to sell that great idea!
