Bailout Poll: 30 Percent For, 45 Against

New Associated Press-Knowledge Networks poll on the $700 billion bailout, which may explain why the House GOP revolted.

45 percent against, 30 percent for, 25 percent undecided.

But there are nuances: 57 percent said some kind of bailout is required to stop a "serious recession."

Oddly, Democrats are more hostile to the Paulson plan than Republicans -- about 40 percent of Dems are opposed, compared to 30 percent of antis who identified themselves as GOP.
