We asked a few questions about the recently passed stimulus bill this month, and although 50 percent of voters say they support the bill, 49 percent of voters think there is a chance the bill will actually make matters worse.
A similar 50 percent of voters said they would be less likely to support the
plan if they knew that the tax cuts in the plan would only yield the
average worker approximately $13 more per week. Nearly one-quarter of
voters who originally voiced support for the plan said this fact would
make them less likely to support the bill.

What to take from this? I'd say voters know something needs to be done, but aren't really convinced the packaged passed by the Democrats in Congress is really the best solution.
Support for the stimulus package is directly tied to support for Obama. And the relative success or failure of his Presidency may very well be decided on it.
