57%: The Stimulus Has Done Nothing...or Worse

Support for the President's stimulus package continues to slide, according to a new USA Today / Gallup poll released today.
57% of adults say the stimulus package is having no impact on the economy or making it worse. Even more —60% — doubt that the stimulus plan will help the economy in the years ahead, and only 18% say it has done anything to help improve their personal situation.
House Republican's quickly jumped on the new numbers, tying them to the costs associated with the President's health care overhaul. Rep Eric Cantor (R-VA) said, "This is a wake-up call for the administration. People see the stimulus hasn't worked, and now you want to lay on over $1 trillion in a health care plan."
