Money Magazine Poll on the Economy -- those Commies!

Money magazine did a poll about the Bush tax cuts with surprising results, or at least they will be surprising to the Bush Administration. This poll is hard on the heels of the AP poll that said Americans two to one prefer a balanced budget over the Voodoo tax cuts brought by the Bush Corporation
This can't be good for Bush.

The new poll shows 75% of Americans prefer job creation spending to the tax cut, and almost 60% said they didn't benefit fromt he cuts personally.
NEW YORK, April 15 /PRNewswire/ -- The April MONEY/ICR Poll has found that three-quarters of Americans say that if they had had a choice between enacting the 2003 tax cuts or spending additional money to create new jobs, they would have picked job creation. The national poll, fielded last week, also found that half of all Americans would also have preferred cutting the deficit over last year's tax cuts. And a majority of Americans-60 percent-said they didn't benefit personally from the tax cuts of 2003. The poll also found that about half of Americans say their federal tax burden is too high and 4 in 10 -- 41% -- say their taxes are about right. MONEY Poll Report
Bush was going to try to use the economy as one of his supposed strong points in this election, but his intelligence on the state of the American voter is about as good as on the whereabouts of Osama Bin Laden. So, if he doesn't get the American voter on the subject of the economy, does he reinvade Iraq to juice things up?
