72% of Americans, Including Over Half of Republicans, Support $2 Trillion Stimulus Package: Poll

More than 70 percent of Americans, including over half of Republicans, support a new $2 trillion stimulus package, according to a new survey. In the latest New York Times/Siena College poll, 72 percent of likely voters backed a $2 trillion stimulus package to extend unemployment benefits, send stimulus checks and provide financial support to state and local governments. Just 21 percent opposed.

Among Republicans, a majority—56 percent—supported a relief bill with a $2 trillion price tag, 34 percent opposed and 9 percent were unsure. Support among Democrats were closer to unanimous, with 91 percent in support, 6 percent opposing and 3 percent unsure.

The poll surveyed 987 likely voters between October 15 and 18. Its margin of error is plus or minus 3.4 percent.

As the months-long stimulus deadlock continues, Americans have grown increasingly frustrated at lawmakers over their inability to reach a deal to provide further relief amid the pandemic. Most of the benefits secured under the bipartisan $2 trillion CARES Act, which was passed in March, lapsed at the end of July, and the chances of another round of relief before Election Day is narrowing.
