Pew national poll: Barack Obama 50%, Mitt Romney 46%

in Uncategorized by

A new Pew Research poll mirrors two national polls cited earlier and shows a very close presidential race with President Obama just ahead of Mitt Romney, 50% to 46%.

Key findinds: “The slide in economic optimism points to Romney’s most important advantage in the race. Nearly half of registered voters (49%) say Romney would do the best job of improving economic conditions, compared with 41% who favor Obama. Yet Romney trails Obama by wide margins on connecting well with ordinary people, honesty and truthfulness, consistency, displaying good judgment and several other personal dimensions.”
