Conservatives Push Back on Stimulus

It’s Friday, February 20, 2009. Here is what we’re looking at:

The National Republican Congressional Committee has launched a campaign against House Democrats (mostly freshmen) for supporting the stimulus package. It includes robo-calls against 11 Democratic Congresspersons and radio ads in 30 other Democratic districts.

The NRCC aren’t the only conservatives pushing back - the American Issues Project has started running the following television ad:

Is the push-back working?

A new CNN/Opinion Research Corp. poll shows that President Obama’s approval rating has dropped about 10 points this month. Yet he still stands strong with 67% job approval. While the survey also suggests 60% of Americans support the stimulus, it is plausible that the conservative push-back has had an impact on Democrats.
