Survey finds most Americans think now is a good time to build infrastructure

The Association of Equipment Manufacturers released details Monday of a non-partisan nationwide poll about voter attitudes on the economy, manufacturing and transportation infrastructure.

When asked how much of the $800 billion economic stimulus package was used to create jobs by rebuilding and improving highways, roads, and bridges, 2 out of 5 voters incorrectly guessed 25 percent (only 3 percent of its funding was dedicated to rebuilding highways, roads and bridges, according to the AEM).

The survey — conducted by Clarus Research Group, a nonpartisan survey research firm based in Washington, D.C. — also found 66 percent of voters believe “given current economic conditions, it’s a good time to build and repair America’s roads and bridges.”
