Public Likes Obama Jobs Plan Even If Congress Doesn’t

Posted by | October 5, 2011 13:59 | Filed under: Top Stories

A Washington Post poll shows that the Obama jobs plan is much more popular with the public than with Congress.

…Obama has made big gains over Republicans on the specific question of who is more trusted to handle jobs. Obama has a 15 point edge on the issue, 49-34, up from a tie of 40-40 in early September.

That’s not all. The poll also finds that a majority, 52 percent, support Obama’s jobs bill, versus only 36 percent who oppose it. And 58 percent say it would improve the unemployment picture, versus only 39 percent who say it wouldn’t. Even more interesting, a whopping 70 percent say Republicans are more interested in protecting the interests of the wealthy than those of the middle class — while 52 percent say Obama protects the interests of the latter.
