|Will the stimulus bill help the economy, hurt the economy or have little impact on the economy?|
Confidence in the $787-billion economic stimulus plan has fallen four points in the week since President Obama signed it into law, and more voters are prepared to punish their representatives for supporting it.
Thirty-four percent (34%) of U.S. voters now say the plan will help the economy, while 32% believe it will hurt, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.
Twenty-six percent (26%) say the plan will have little impact on the economy. Eight percent (8%) are undecided.
A week ago, 38% of voters said the plan will help the economy, while 29% said it will hurt.
