New Poll Finds More Americans Against Obama's High-Speed Rail Plan Than For It

A poll from Rasmussen Reports found that likely voters are not buying President Barack Obamas plan to dramatically increase high-speed rail in the United States. The poll found 41 percent of those surveyed backed the plan with 46 percent against it. There is a partisan divide on the issue with 59 percent of Democrats behind it, 62 percent of Republicans against it and 55 percent of independents opposing it.

The poll also found Americans think more high-speed rail will not help create jobs -- but slashing government spending would. Most of those surveyed, 57 percent, thought cutting government would lead to more jobs while 28 percent thought that high-speed rail could lead to more employment.

The poll of 1,000 likely voters was taken on Feb. 10-11 and had a margin of error of +/- 3 percent.
