Poll: Americans have economic growing pains

(CNN)- More than half the nation believes the economy is in a recession or depression according to a new Gallup survey, despite White House assurances that the economy is growing.

The Thursday poll reveals that 26 percent of Americans say the economy is in a recession and 29 percent say it is in a depression on the same day that Austan Goolsbee, chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers, released a statement saying the economy posted the "seventh straight quarter of positive growth."

CNN Poll: Most say govt. shutdown bad; Tea Party disagrees

Washington (CNN) - Most Americans say that a federal government shutdown would be bad for the country, according to a new national poll.

But a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey also indicates that Democrats and Republicans don't see eye to eye on the issue, and self-described Tea Party movement supporters say such a shutdown, even for a long period of time, would be a good thing. The poll's Tuesday release came just before the House of Representatives voted to continue funding the federal government for three weeks, a major step towards temporarily avoiding a possible government shutdown.
