Gallup: Obama Winning Opinion Fight on Stimulus

President Obama is winning the public opinion fight over the economic stimulus package under consideration in Congress, according to a new poll from Gallup.

Obama enjoys a 67 percent approval rating on how he has handled the government's efforts to pass a stimulus bill, while Republicans in Congress have earned a 31 percent approval rating on how they've handled the stimulus effort, according to the poll.

Congressional Democrats ranked in the middle, with a 48 percent approval rating on the stimulus.



Disapproval ratings reflected the same order. Obama collected a disapproval rating of 25 percent on the stimulus; Congressional Democrats, 42 percent; and Congressional Republicans, 58 percent.

Gallup surveyed 1,012 U.S. adults on Feb. 4 for the poll. Its margin of error is +/- three percentage points.
