Obama: Likability Higher than Job Performance

USA Today/Gallup pre-RNC/DNC conventions poll highlights perhaps Obama’s biggest weakness — the state of the economy and his perceived handling of it.

In the poll, Americans said Romney was better equipped to handle the economy and the federal budget deficit. Obama has a strong position on a number of key issues in the campaign but a weak position on the issue Americans say is most important to their vote.

One of the reasons Americans might perceive Romney as the better economic steward is because they generally think President Obama is doing a poor job of handling the economy — 36% approve and 60% disapprove of his handling of that issue.
