Seeing the Light: 56% Now Oppose the Stimulus

A new poll out today shows continued erosion of public support for President Obama's signature economic policy:
A majority of Americans oppose the economic stimulus program, according to a new national poll.

Fifty-six percent of people questioned in a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Sunday say they oppose the stimulus package, with 42 percent supporting it.

Last March, just weeks after the stimulus bill was signed into law by President Barack Obama, a CNN poll indicated that 54 percent of the public supported the program, with 44 percent opposed.
While this isn't the first poll showing more than 50% opposed to the measure, it does represents the largest favorability gap to date: -14%.
