The Bounce is Back
For two weeks, Republicans cited polls from Rasmussen Reports to prove that the stimulus package “proposed by Barack Obama and the Congressional Democrats” was fading in popularity, and that their push to stop it was winning converts. Today’s poll on the stimulus suggests that President Obama’s publicity blitz has reversed the trend and won over a plurality of Americans.
Do you favor or oppose the economic recovery package proposed by Barack Obama and the Congressional Democrats?
Favor – 44% (+7)
Oppose – 40% (-3)
Not Sure – 15% (-5)
This confirms a Gallup poll that showed stimulus support surging seven points since the president started his PR tour.
