NBC/WSJ poll: A split on the bailout

From NBC's Mark Murray
American voters are evenly divided over the Bush administration's proposed $700 billion plan to bail out troubled financial firms, according to the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll, the rest of which comes out at 6:30 pm ET.

Thirty-three percent disapprove of the plan. By comparison, 31 percent approve of it; 28 percent have no opinion.

This is the context for President Bush's speech tonight on the economy at 9:00 pm ET.
