President Obama’s campaigning for the Democrats’ pork-fest, along with the fear and hysteria the Dems have done their best to whip up, have been somewhat effective in building support for the Democrats’ bill. Rasmussen finds that a plurality of voters now support the “stimulus” bill, 44%-40%, compared to 37%-43% opposition one week ago.
Still, that’s anything but a ringing endorsement, and most voters approve of the bill’s meager tax-cut provisions more than its spending. And support for the bill is likely to fall if, in the coming weeks, voters don’t see any apparent consequences.
