Description

This was supposed to be Mitt Romney’s week. Back-to-back wins in Florida and Nevada have helped to cement him as the all-but-certain Republican nominee. Instead, the latest ABC News-Washington Post poll points to President Obama as the biggest winner of the GOP primary contest. President Obama has snuck ahead of Romney among registered voters, 51 percent to 45 percent. What’s more, 50 percent of voters in the new poll approve of Obama’s job performance and the same percentage say he deserves re-election “Two chief factors are at play,” according to ABC News pollster Gary Langer. “One is the economy’s gradual but unmistakable improvement, marked by the newly reported January unemployment rate of 8.3 percent — the lowest since a month after Obama took office. The other: questions focused on Romney’s wealth, his low tax burden and, relatedly, his ability to connect with average Americans.”
