A new Washington Post-ABC News poll shows President Obama and Mitt Romney are locked in a dead heat over who could fix the country’s economic problems, 47% to 47%.
When asked where they stand financially compared with when Obama took office, 30% say they are worse off, and only 16% say they are better off.
“There is not a widespread sense that things would be better had Romney been president for the past three-plus years, but for the incumbent it is a critical measure. On this question, Obama’s numbers continue to resemble those of George H.W. Bush, who lost his bid for reelection in 1992 amid a flagging economy.”
However, in a general election match up, Obama still leads Romney, 49% to 46%.
