Of course, Rasmussen Reports has had nearly the opposite data, and getting worse. They state, "Thirty-four percent (34%) of U.S. voters now say the plan will help the economy, while 32% believe it will hurt...A week ago, 38% of voters said the plan will help the economy, while 29% said it will hurt....Forty-one percent (41%) of voters say they are less likely to vote for their representative in Congress if he or she voted for the stimulus measure, compared to 35% a week ago....Twenty-nine percent (29%) say they are more likely to vote for a representative who supported the plan, a drop of three points in a week."
