WASHINGTON (CNN) – Hours before President Barack Obama on Tuesday morning delivers what the White House calls a major speech on the economy, a new national poll indicates that nearly six in 10 Americans think he has a clear plan for solving the country's economic problems.
Fifty-eight percent of people questioned in a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Tuesday morning say Obama has a clear plan to deal with the recession. That's more than double the 24 percent who think that Republicans in Congress have a clear plan on the economy. Nearly three in four polled say the GOP doesn't have a clear economic plan.
"Not surprisingly, Republicans don't think that Obama has a clear plan for economic recovery," said CNN Polling Director Keating Holland. "But Republicans also don't think that the GOP leaders in Congress have a clear plan either. Only 36 percent of Republicans nationwide believe that the GOP leadership has a clear plan; six in 10 Republicans don't feel that way."

After Democrats accused the GOP of being the party of no ideas, congressional Republicans introduced alternative budget proposals last month.
