Rasmussen Report - Most Americans are closely following news reports on the Bush Administration's federal bailout plan for the country's troubled economy, but just 28% support what has been proposed so far.

Over one-third of voters (37%) oppose the $700-billion plan, and nearly as many (35%) are undecided, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey taken Sunday night. Details of the plan were made public on Saturday.

Investors, who account for 62% of the nation's voters, are evenly divided on their views of the plan: 36% favor it, and 36% oppose it. Twenty-eight percent (28%) are undecided.

Among non-investors, only 15% support the plan, while 41% oppose it. A plurality of non-investors (43%) are not sure yet what they think of it. . .

The results are not surprising considering the fact that more than one in ten in New York alone work for the financial corporations and brokerage outfits, or depend on their activity for their own livelihood. They have a vested interest on a federal bailout. Plus the number of retirees who bought in the wonders of the pyramid schemes offered by the "investment banks". They won't footing the bill when it comes due, but will loose big if it doesn't materialize.
The rest, either paid attention and oppose the uncertain bailout, or are oblivious to what's going on with our society...
Great blogging.
