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. What's more, 64 percent of respondents agree with the statement that it is a "good idea" to raise taxes on the wealthy and corporations, because they should pay their fair share and can afford to pay more to help fund programs and government operations.

Yeah. NBC wasn't fishing for a result here were they with their push poll. Good luck with this shabby poll to prop up your loser Marxist.

Too bad for NBC they can't contact every household in the USA to read them their talking points. In the end the poll proves the job's bill is another loser for Obama.

Free money is great. Who is against free money? Conservatives cannot compete against the illusion of free money. The last statement is a flat lie. The tax on the wealthy even if it achieves exactly as the Democrats say, would not come close to funding the new orgy of spending. NBC has become an arm of the Democrat party. Democrats should be forced to count this poll as a campaign contribution.

They didn’t REALLY add that bit about the “fair share” in the question did they? It’s guaranteed to get a “yes” answer. Who would be opposed to anyone not paying their “fair share” in taxes? It’s like that Jimmy Fallon commercial where he shows the pie chart showing that 99% of people want “more cash”.
