President’s budget not too popular

Web poll indicates readers don’t like proposal for fiscal 2012

President Barack Obama’s fiscal 2012 budget proposal isn’t faring too well in Washington Technology’s online poll.

We ask a single question: "Is the the president’s budget leading the country is a good direction or a bad one?"

The resounding reaction so far is negative, with 54 percent of respondents saying that the budget is leading the country in a bad direction.

Thirty-seven percent say the direction is positive, while 8 percent say the budget will not change the direction of the country.

In three days of polling, we have received more than 100 responses.
