National Survey of 1,000 Adults
Conducted November 6-7, 2011
By Rasmussen Reports
1* The unemployment rate is currently 9%. Some believe that the stimulus plan passed early in the Obama Administration kept the rate from rising higher. Did the stimulus plan reduce unemployment, increase unemployment or have no impact on unemployment?
2* In 2009, Congress and the president enacted a $787 billion economic stimulus plan. So far, has the economic stimulus plan helped the economy, hurt the economy or had no impact on the economy?
3* How confident are you that the money from the stimulus plan was well and wisely spent?
4* Currently, the president is promoting a new jobs plan. If his plan passed, would it help the economy or hurt the economy?
5* Which will do more to help create jobs in America—decisions made by government officials to help the economy grow or decisions made by U.S. business leaders to help their own businesses grow?
