[cnn-photo-caption image= http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2008/images/10/22/art.paulson.ap.jpg caption="Paulson gets low marks from Americans."]NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) - A majority of Americans aren't happy with the way Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson is handling his job or with the financial rescue package he and Congress created, according to a poll released Wednesday.
Of 1,058 people surveyed in a CNN/Opinion Research Corp. poll, 64% said they disapproved of Paulson's performance and 28% said they approved. The poll was conducted on Oct. 17-19 and the margin of error was plus or minus 3 percentage points.
The Treasury secretary, however, fared better than the president has recently. In an earlier poll, 72% of Americans said they disapproved of the way President Bush is handling his job.\
