February 5, 2009 - Economic Stimulus Package Won't Help Me, New Jersey Voters Tell Quinnipiac University Poll; But Most Support Plan And Approve Of Obama 4- 1

Word format

While New Jersey voters support President Barack Obama's Economic Stimulus Package 53 - 36 percent, they are divided over whether it will help the nation's economy and two-thirds say it will not help their personal finances, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today. Voters say 67 - 28 percent that the stimulus plan won't help them personally.

Independent voters say 74 - 20 percent the package won't help them, a negative feeling shared by Republicans 89 - 7 percent. By a narrow 49 - 46 percent margin, Democrats say the plan will help them, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University poll finds.

New Jersey voters approve 65 - 16 percent of the overall job President Barack Obama is doing and approve 59 - 21 percent of the way he is handling the economy.

The nation's economy is "not so good," 27 percent say, while 70 percent say it is "poor." Only 2 percent say the U.S. economy is "good" and 1 percent says it is "excellent."

A total of 51 percent are "very confident" or "somewhat confident" the plan will help solve the nation's economic problems, while 47 percent are "not too confident" or "not confident at all."

Only 43 percent of New Jersey voters are "very confident" or "somewhat confident" the stimulus plan will help the Garden State, while 56 percent are "not too confident' or "not confident at all."

"The bottom line is that a majority of New Jersey voters say their personal financial situation is poor or not so good and two thirds do not expect their personal finances to get any better because of President Obama's Economic Stimulus Package being debated in Washington," said Clay F. Richards, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.

New Jersey voters say 68 - 10 percent that the U.S. economy will improve by the end of Obama's first term. But 72 percent say it will take more than a year for the Economic Stimulus Package to work, while 22 percent say it will never work.

"Voters give the new President a strong 65 percent job approval rating, but nearly three quarters say it will take more than a year for the stimulus program to work. One voter in five says it will not work at all," Richards added. Personal Finances

Only 4 percent of voters describe their personal finances as "excellent," while 42 percent say "good." Another 38 percent say "not so good," while 15 percent say "poor."

They're worse off financially than they were a year ago, 57 percent say, as 21 percent say they're better off and 21 percent say things are the same. Their personal finances will get better in the next year, 30 percent say, while 15 percent expect things to get worse and 52 percent expect things to stay the same.

A total of 66 percent of New Jersey voters are "very worried" or "somewhat worried" that they will not have enough money to live on in retirement.

"New Jersey voters are gloomy about their own financial prospects, with more than half saying their personal finances are not so good or poor. Among those with a retirement plan or 401k, 88 percent have lost money. And 66 percent of all voters are worried about not having enough money to live on in retirement," Richards said.

From January 29 - February 5, Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,173 New Jersey registered voters with a margin of error of +/- 2.9 percentage points.

The Quinnipiac University Poll, directed by Douglas Schwartz, Ph.D., conducts public opinion surveys in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Florida, Ohio and nationally as a public service and for research.
