"Poll: Majority of Americans want bailout to help Main Street, not just Wall Street."

A new USA Today poll finds that 78 percent of Americans agree that Congress should pass a plan to rescue America’s financial markets, with 56 percent saying the plan should be different from the original one proposed by the Bush administration last week. Sixty three percent support limits on CEO compensation for corporations who participate in the bailout and 80 percent say provisions to help homeowners unable to afford their mortgages are “important.”
