NBC/WSJ Poll: 63% Support Jobs Bill Components

In a new poll that will come out Wednesday at 6:30 pm, NBC News reported today that their survey shows the American Jobs Act is slightly popular as a general concept, but Americans like the individual components of the plan by a wide margin.

From NBC’s First Read:

“When asked simply if Congress should pass the legislation or not, 30 percent of respondents answer yes, while 22 percent say no; 44 percent have no opinion.
But when the legislation’s details are included in a follow-up question — that it would cut payroll taxes, fund new road construction, extend unemployment benefits, and that it would be paid for by increasing taxes on the wealthy — 63 percent say they favor the bill and 32 percent oppose it.”
