Public Rejects Obama Stimulus Bill According to New ATI-News/Zogby Poll


WASHINGTON, Feb. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Amidst all the rhetoric surrounding President Barack Obama's first signature piece of legislation, a massive $800 billion economic "stimulus" bill, one thing is clear: a majority of Americans reject the President's handiwork. A just-released ATI-News/Zogby International poll shows that clear majorities of Republicans and Independents are against it.


Sixty-six percent of Independent voters think Obama wants to spend too much money on items that won't improve the economy. As for Republicans, a staggering 93 percent agree.

Across the board, the poll found that, on average, 90 percent of Republicans and 60 percent of Independents disapprove of Obama's stimulus bill.

"Our poll numbers are no different than the ones being read in the White House," said ATI-News president Brad O'Leary. "That's why President Obama is being forced to campaign across America for his stimulus bill - 90 percent of Republicans and 60 percent of Independents oppose it."

Only 60% of Independents? What, the rest were not home?

Geez. While I expect a bit of radical leftism, one would think everyone sees this for what it is..:)

Thanks for the numbers, bro.

the numbers look good for getting rid of three Republicans who voted for the stimulus package.
