    Voters Give Romney Slight Edge Over Obama on Economy

    Voters Give Romney Slight Edge Over Obama on Economy

    Republicans more negative about Obama than Democrats are about Romney

    by Elizabeth Mendes


    WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Registered voters are more likely to say Mitt Romney, if elected president, would do a very good or good job of handling the economy than they are to say President Obama would, if re-elected -- 61% vs. 52%. While the two men earn about equal "very good" ratings, 22% of voters think Obama would do a "very poor" job, more than twice as many as say the same about Romney (10%).

    Independents also give Romney much better ratings than Obama on handling the economy. Twenty-one percent of independents believe Obama would do a very poor job with the economy over the next four years, while 7% say the same about Romney. They are more likely to say Romney than Obama would do a very good or good job -- 64% vs. 52%.

    Independents' views on the forced-choice question are similar, with 50% saying Romney would do a better job and 40% saying Obama would. Democrats and Republicans overwhelmingly choose their respective party's candidate as better able to manage the economy -- at almost identically high levels.

    Why Obama is headed for win in November; people don't like Romney, not even the people who are planning to vote for him.

    This should be an easy win for Republicans... Sadly, they picked Romney and now they stand a very good chance to lose.

    And when the Republicans lose they'll blame us for not holding our noses and voting for old Etch A Sketch Romney

    Just stating the facts. I really don't see how Obama is going to win. And it's only going to get worse for him.

    National Mood a Drag on Obama's Re-Election Prospects

    U.S. satisfaction and economic ratings low compared with years incumbents won

    by Lydia Saad


    PRINCETON, NJ -- Some six months before voters head to the polls to choose the next president of the United States, Gallup finds several indicators of the economic and political climate holding steady at levels that could be troublesome for President Barack Obama. According to Gallup polling in early May, Obama's approval rating is below 50%, Americans' satisfaction with the direction of the country is barely above 20%, and the economy remains a dominant concern.
