Gallup: Stimulus Support At 59%
A few days ago it was at 52%.
What was the difference? Well, it looks like it was Obama’s press conference.
Ultimately it looks like Dem support has increased significantly, but do note that Independent support still represents a pretty good gauge of what the overall number is. And Republican support actually went up more than Independent.
It’ll be interesting to see if some of the other polls start to pick up, like the CBS poll that showed a 12% drop in support about a week ago…
Fifty-one percent of those questioned in a CBS News poll released Thursday evening approved of the stimulus package. That’s down 12 points from a poll taken January 11-15, the last time CBS asked the question. Thirty-nine percent opposed the plan, up 15 points from the previous poll, taken before President Barack Obama was inaugurated and before the House of Representatives passed an $819 billion stimulus package, with no Republican support, on January 28.
