Pew Poll: Stimulus News Seen More Negative Than Positive

The Pew Research Center for the People & the Press, a public opinion research organization that claims to be non-partisan (but in reality somewhat liberal as with most news related organizations), reported late today that as the debate over President Obama’s $800+ billion so-called economic stimulus plan played out in Congress over the past week, more Americans were hearing bad things than good things about the legislation.
