Gallup: Americans favor Obama jobs plan by 45% to 32%
The most interesting aspect of the Gallup STORY on the new poll reads as follows:
While fewer than half of all Americans favor passage of a jobs bill similar to Obama’s, a solid majority of Americans who are following news of the bill very closely, 57%, want to see it passed.
Those who are not following it too closely also tend to favor the bill’s passage, 43% vs. 26%, with a fairly large percentage having no opinion. The majority of those who say they are not following news about the Obama jobs bill at all have no opinion on the issue, with the rest closely divided but tilting against the bill.
In other words, the more you know about the bill, the more likely you are to support it.
