I’m not exactly certain how to write the headline for this post, but in a recent New York Times/CBS News poll, only 6 percent of Americans believed the $787 billion stimulus program created any jobs. So, in comparison, how many think Sept. 11 was an inside job or involves a government cover-up?
Hat tip to Gateway Pundit who provides us a link to the full poll and this poll question. Click to enlarge.
In a Twitter post, JasonMattera wonders about the comparison to the number of Americans who think 9/11 was an inside job. No need to wonder Jason! We’ve got all sorts of polling data about that exact question, and the second one listed below is from the same source who asked if the stimulus worked!
I’m not sure if there is any recent polling data, but here are some results I found…
Example 1: 16 percent of Americans speculate that secretly planted explosives, not burning passenger jets, were the real reason the massive twin towers of the World Trade Center collapsed.
Example 2: A New York Times/CBS News poll, where we have trends and everything!
So by the fall of 2006, 28 percent of Americans polled thought the Bush administration was “mostly lying” about the events of Sept. 11.
As a reminder, 6 percent of Americans today think the $787 billion stimulus actually created jobs.
