For the First Time– Plurality in US Now Believe the Obama Stimulus Bill Hurt the Economy

Obama and Democrats tripled the national deficit in less than one year with their $787 billion failed stimulus.

Obama increased the national debt to $12 Trillion.
And he nearly doubled the unemployment rate from the Bush years since his failed Stimulus Plan was passed.

For the first time a plurality of Americans believe the Pelosi-Obama trillion dollar Stimulus boondoggle hurt the economy rather than helped it.
Rasmussen reported:

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 30{c18972fae7bad54fccba2a5109f73c6e4ffe73508739d7249e14c4c49d351322} of voters nationwide believe the $787-billion economic stimulus plan has helped the economy. However, 38{c18972fae7bad54fccba2a5109f73c6e4ffe73508739d7249e14c4c49d351322} believe that the stimulus plan has hurt the economy. This is the first time since the legislation passed that a plurality has held a negative view of its impact.

The number who believe that the stimulus plan has hurt the economy rose from 28{c18972fae7bad54fccba2a5109f73c6e4ffe73508739d7249e14c4c49d351322} in September, to 31{c18972fae7bad54fccba2a5109f73c6e4ffe73508739d7249e14c4c49d351322} in October, and 34{c18972fae7bad54fccba2a5109f73c6e4ffe73508739d7249e14c4c49d351322} in November before jumping to 38{c18972fae7bad54fccba2a5109f73c6e4ffe73508739d7249e14c4c49d351322} this month. The week after the president signed the bill, 34{c18972fae7bad54fccba2a5109f73c6e4ffe73508739d7249e14c4c49d351322} said it would help the economy, while 32{c18972fae7bad54fccba2a5109f73c6e4ffe73508739d7249e14c4c49d351322} said it would hurt.
