A solid majority of Americans oppose ALL the bailouts

A month into his Presidency, Barack Obama has honeymoon-level support of the American people, as the latest polls demonstrates. In last night's address to Congress and the nation, he certainly firmed up that support.

He's going to need it. A new Rasmussen survey reports that a solid majority of Americans opposed to all the proposed bailouts.

"Given the choice between federal bailouts for the auto companies, the finance industry and financially trouble homeowners or no bailouts for any of them, 54% say no bailouts period." Only 26% support all three bailouts.

On the plus side for Obama, the GOP response to his speech before Congress by Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal was simply awful. Obama should have little difficulty running over an opposition like that.

What's your view of the bailouts? Post a comment.
