    WASHINGTON | Fri Jun 15, 2012 4:14pm EDT

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - With President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney delivering dueling visions for the U.S. economy in speeches on Thursday, a majority of independents said that Obama's policies have made it harder for Americans to gain employment, a Reuters/Ipsos poll showed on Friday.

    Fifty-two percent of independents said they agreed with the idea that the president has not helped create more jobs in America, an argument central to Romney's campaign.

    Obama appears to have trouble convincing some members of his own party that his administration has been good for jobs: 29 percent of Democrats said they agreed with the claim that he has not been a job creator.

    With the unemployment rate at 8.1 percent, the Obama campaign maintains that 4.2 million private-sector jobs have been created since he entered office in January 2009, although roughly as many have been lost.

    "I think the thing that Obama's team is going to be worried about is the number of independents who agree that the policies the president has put in place make it harder to create jobs," said Ipsos pollster Chris Jackson. "The key conversation is convincing them that the things he has done have helped the economy or not certainly made things worse."

    Romney, a former Massachusetts governor, argues that the Obama administration's healthcare reform has been bad for the economy, a view that now resonates with a majority of people.

    Among registered voters, 57 percent said that they believe the healthcare overhaul has damaged the economy while 43 percent said the 2010 legislation has been good for the economy.

    If they had any doubts in their minds that this Presidents policies have been detrimental to job growth and Americans getting back to work, the amnesty for illegals should clear any of those doubts.

    Giving instant work visas to illegals when the people here cant find jobs certainly isnt going to help the situation here at all.

    The Republicans have done an excellent job with messaging. The reality is..the ACA has nothing to slow job growth. And in the long run..if the court holds it up..it will actually create LOTS of Jobs.

    You probably wouldn't know how.

    But then again..most of you folks lack that knowledge.

    As in "How to get things done."

    But you're very good at screwing things up..and saying no.

    This is a prime example.

    In a thread about the ACA..this posts riffs, incorrectly, about illegals.

    Amazing.
