Gallup: 53% Favor Passing $775 Billion Stimulus

By  | 

And you may think that it’s a narrow margin, but there’s definitely room for that consensus to grow…

From Gallup…

So how does that break down when looking at party affiliation?

Once again, the independent voter provides a valuable guide as they’re only 1% off the average view…

And, surprisingly enough, the broadest support for the stimulus plan comes when asked about spending government money on infrastructure projects…

Almost 80% think that spending government money on rebuilding our infrastructure is a good thing? There’s absolutely no way that anybody can stop that momentum because it speaks to a dissatisfaction with our current bridges, highways and power grids.

And yes, I know this is only one poll, but Gallup is historically extremely accurate and I can’t help but think that even if they’re off by a massive 10% with these numbers, the will of people demand that we invest in our future via public works projects.
