Even as the White House and Congress put the finishing touches on a $15 billion rescue package for the Big Three automakers, 53% of U.S. voters say they oppose taxpayer-funded loans to help keep General Motors, Ford and Chrysler in business.

Twenty-eight percent (28%) of voters support loans for the automakers, and 19% are undecided, according to a Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey taken Saturday and Sunday nights.

Fifty-four percent (54%) of investors oppose the loans, while 29% favor them. The numbers are nearly identical for non-investors.
