President Barack Obama has been traveling the country to tout his plan to create jobs, but a plurality of Americans has no opinion on whether it should pass, a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll finds.

The findings are part of the poll to be released at 6:30 p.m. today that includes the latest soundings on the Republican presidential nominating contest and views of Mr. Obama.

More people liked the Obama jobs plan than disliked it – 30% said it should pass, compared to 22% who said it should not.

But a larger share—44%—had no opinion.

The people surveyed had a higher opinion of the plan after pollsters listed its provisions. Once the central elements were enumerated—such as a payroll tax cut and new road construction, as well as the fact that it would be funded by raising taxes on the wealthy—63% said they favored the measure and 32% did not.

Mr. Obama introduced the “American Jobs Act” in a speech to a joint session of Congress in early September, and he’s spent the past month traveling the country urging Congress to “pass this bill now.” On Tuesday night, the Senate blocked the legislation, and now Democrats plan to break it into pieces and try to pass them individually.
