NYT: Poll Shows Economy Hurting Prez
Pat Buchanan, reacting to a new Fox News Poll, says there's not a great deal of good news for Mitt Romney (down 4% against Obama), and that lots of Republicans would like to see a poll that puts Mitt in front.
If you watch the president lately... he's deprectiating his prime asset, the presidency... and he's ceasing to be the nice guy who everyone thought he was... some folks would like to see one poll where Romney was in the lead.
As it turns out, the New York Times released a poll yesterday showing Mitt with a statistically insignificant one point lead.
...the poll showed a significant shift in opinion about Mr. Obama’s handling of the economy, with 39 percent now saying they approved and 55 percent saying they disapproved.
In the Times/CBS poll in April, when the economy seemed to have momentum, 44 percent approved and 48 percent disapproved.
The poll also shows 19% of voters who say they could still change their minds, a bad sign for the incumbent.
