Americans think that last year’s stimulus “has not helped the job situation" by a margin of 60 percent to 33 percent, according to a new Pew poll. Yet, the Obama administration desperately wants to pass more stimulus plans.

Pew also points out that there is not "broad public agreement that past government policies intended to address the financial crisis" have worked, unless you look at the way most Republicans think the crisis should be address. Then, you have a broad consensus that business taxes could be cut.
