Epic Fail: Only 6% of Americans believe the stimulus created jobs

I don’t think I have ever seen poll numbers like this for a policy before.  Keep in mind this comes from a left leaning New York Times/ CBS poll.

In December the Obama Administration announced they had “saved or created” 1.1 million jobs.
In January the Obama Administration announced they had “saved or created” 2 million jobs.
Too bad for Obama that Americans aren’t buying his “saved or created” nonsense.

Just 6% of Americans believe the $787 “stimulus” boondoggle created any jobs according to a recent New York Times/CBS poll.
With numbers like this, you have to wonder why politicians seeking re-election on both sides of the aisle have not started talking about canceling the stimulus? It would seem like the smart thing to do both fiscally and politically.

Unbelievable number: 6%!!!

Even more unbelievable: 41% still have "hope."

What is wrong with that fringe 6%? And what is wrong with Obama and the Democrats in Congress that keep pushing the stupid idea that the stimulus work for jobs creation? That bill was nothing more then a Democratic Party slush fund to help get Democrats elected this year and 2012. They have only spent 1/3 of the money. So that bill wasn't about j0obs or the economy like they sold it to us. Impeachment is what they deserve.

That 41% goes to show how we ended up in this situation in the first place.

If our media was actually functioning in this country, the administration would have never been able to get away with the stimulus in the first place.
