Well so much for oversampled polls at CNN, the post DNC bounce Obama had – for a day – is gone.
“Last week’s Democratic National Convention helped President Obama improve his standing against Republican Mitt Romney, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll, but did little to reduce voter concern about his handling of the economy.
The survey shows that the race remains close among likely voters, with Obama at 49 percent and Romney at 48 percent, virtually unchanged from a poll taken just before the conventions.”
Obama’s still winning the “likability”, gay, women vote, but this election is about the economy, and?
“But the poll also shows how hard it is to translate any of these advantages on attributes into electoral gains. Despite a feverish effort at the Democratic convention, neither Obama nor his prominent supporters were able to reverse disapproval of the president’s handling of the economy, the dominant issue in the campaign, or inspire confidence that things will pick up if he is reelected.”
No doubt those dismal jobs numbers are settling in and America are again thinking with their finances which is where they’re vote in November.
The Commander in Chief at Work!
