Public Opinion Squarely Against a Second Stimulus

Rasmussen released a poll yesterday detailing scarce public interest in a second stimulus bill. The poll found:
Just 27% of voters nationwide favor passage of a second economic stimulus package. The latest Rasmussen Reports nationwide telephone survey found that 55% are opposed and 19% are not sure.

Despite the public opposition, 74% say it’s likely that Congress will try to pass another stimulus plan before the year is out. That figure includes 45% who say it’s Very Likely that Congress will do so.
The most telling statistic here is not simply that Americans oppose another package – it’s that the vast majority are resigned to the fact that Congress will try to ram a second stimulus through whether the people want it or not.
