Barack Obama has opened a significant lead over Mitt Romney in a Bloomberg National Poll that reflects the presumed Republican nominee’s weaknesses more than the president’s strengths.There is also the right track, wrong track question in this poll, which maybe the media is misreading:
Obama leads Romney 53 percent to 40 percent among likely voters, even as the public gives him low marks on handling the economy and the deficit, and six in 10 say the nation is headed down the wrong track, according to the poll conducted June 15- 18. Bloomberg
More troubling for Obama’s re-election bid, just 31 percent say the nation is headed in the right direction compared with 62 percent who say it’s on the wrong track.It's difficult to say the economy is on the right track when there's still so much improvement to be made. We won't begin to say it's on the right track until we see our incomes, our job prospectives and our overall well being improve relative to those at the top.
