From Rasmussen Reports:

Most Americans Say Leaders Clueless On The Economy

Just 37% of Americans are even somewhat confident that their political leaders know what they’re doing as they try to address the nation’s economic problems.

Of this group, only four percent (4%) are Very Confident they know what they’re doing, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.

Fifty-eight percent (58%) lack confidence in their leaders, including 20% who say they are not at all confident that policymakers know what they are doing with regards to the troubled U.S. economy.

Adding to the concern, American voters believe that lobbyists will have a far bigger influence on the congressional debate than either taxpayers or Barack Obama. Just 17% think Congress will listen most to taxpayers in determining the details of the recovery plan. Nearly half (47%) say they will listen most to lobbyists, and 21% believe the new president will be the most important voice they hear.
