With the Senate poised to vote Tuesday on an $827-billion version of the economic recovery plan, 62% of U.S. voters want the plan to include more tax cuts
and less government spending.
Just 14% would like to move in the opposite direction with more government spending and fewer tax cuts, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey. Twenty percent (20%) would be happy to pass it pretty much as is, and five percent (5%) are not sure.
Obama headed to Indiana today to try to drum up support for Porkulus ahead of Tuesday's expected Senate vote. This bill is a disaster for the country -- and Obama's prestige. Look for Obama's poll numbers to take a major hit. Fittingly, the photo below shows Obama bumping his head as he boarded Marine One Monday Feb. 9.

UPDATE -- from comments:
"... if this had happened to Bush the press would go on and on about how stupid or uncoordinated he is. With Obama all they do is question why the helicopter door is too low.".
