Poll: Most Want Congress to Block TARP Money

Most Americans want Congress to block the disbursement of the remaining $350 billion in bailout money until they get more details about how the funds would be used, according to a new Gallup poll.

Though President-elect Obama has asked Congress for the money now, 62 percent of Americans want the request blocked until they receive plans on how it will be spent. Another 12 percent said that the money should be blocked entirely, and just 20 percent want the money released.

Support for Congress to block the funds is bipartisan -- 67 percent of Republicans and 65 percent of Democrats want the money blocked until they hear more details.
