[B]CNN Poll: More Americans trust Obama on economy over Republicans in Congress [/B] In a new CNN/ORC poll, more Americans say they trust President Obama on economic matters more than they do Republicans in Congress. The survey released on Wednesday shows that a large majority like most of the major proposals offered in the plan that was sent to Congress Monday. By a 43-35 percent margin, a plurality of Americans approve of the economic program Obama outlined in his speech to Congress last week says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland. And most of the nation agree that stimulating employment is more important right now than reducing the federal budget, as two-thirds believe that creating jobs should take precedence over the federal budget deficit and only 29 percent say reducing the deficit should be more important that reducing unemployment.
