  •  stimulus bill (0+ / 0-)

    Yes people support a stimulus bill.

    Unfortunately the more they learn about this one the less willing they are to support it.

    Guess you didn't see the latest CNN poll.

    http://www.cnn.com/...

    Last I heard CNN was not a bastion of conservative thought.

    When a salesman tells you that you have to sign the documents right away or you'll miss the deal of a lifetime, It's time to hold onto your wallet and leave.

      •  I think the title of the post was SUPPORT RISES (0+ / 0-)

        Thanks for the new data.

        Seems that support is indeed falling.

        Bit of a contradiction from the title of the post.
        "Politics 101: Stimulus Support Rises As Obama Sells"

        But I guess facts shouldn't interfer with a good story.

          In late Jan, Hotline was 52. In early Feb, Ras (the outlier) was whatever Ras was, and the others were basically 52, give or take. The details I proved at the link point out wording changes and other things that subtly affect the numbers.

          Ras will release data and go up today (he's already said that).

          Earlier indications—from a single night of polling—indicates that the press conference worked as expected. Support for the stimulus package increased as did the number of people who Strongly Approve of the President. Full results on the latest round of stimulus polling will be released tomorrow (Thursday).

          Gallup has gone up to 59 since the first week of Feb. D Corps is at 60.

          Support was stable, and now it's rising.

          I love when the most obnoxious posters are the most wrong.

      Or misinformed by right wing liars.

      •  Point, what point ! (0+ / 0-)

        Or brainwashed by left wing loons.

        Not sure what happen to you on the playground, but I'd work out your anger issue before you parade this as a rational argument.
