A new poll says 75 percent of New Yorkers support President Barack Obama's nearly $800 billion economic stimulus plan to boost spending on infrastructure projects, increase aid to states and cut taxes.

     The Siena College Poll reports nearly 80 percent agree the bill isn't perfect, but a failure to act will make things worse.
    
Nonetheless, 59 percent are worrying about the burden the package will impose on the next generation of Americans and 40 percent believe it includes unnecessary and wasteful spending.
    
Overall, 75 percent of those polled blame large banks for taking federal bailout money but failing to put those dollars to work for taxpayers.
    
The survey of 613 state residents from last Wednesday through Sunday has an error margin of 4 points.
