Among all Americans, Obama and Romney are tied at 47 percent each. Among registered voters, Romney is ahead 49 percent to 46 percent.

It may or may not be Mitt but 1/20/13 = buh bye Barry and it can't come soon enough.

Not a chance. Once fox news and the other candidates let the Romneycare hate machine fire up and the evangelicals pull out the pitchforks and torches over his mormonism, his ratings will plunge.

Why cherry pick with "approval of economic record" stat?

"Overall approval" is the standard....And that's as high as it was two years ago.

Here's the problem. Not all of the people who disapprove of Obama's economic policies disapprove because they are too liberal. A good amount of people, maybe not the majority, think his economic policies aren't liberal enough and will definitely not translate into votes for Romney.

Exactly. That's a big misconception here. Happens all the time....Some stat talks about "not agreeing"...and that automatically means therefore "they agree with my side"..lol

Disapproval of Obama
Mitt would be the same thing as Obama. If you vote for him, you're not voting for anyone different than who is already in office.

I know one thing. This was news.
Money market fund breaks the buck, freezes redemptions FundWatch - MarketWatch

And since Obama came on board, I haven't read about it happening again.

However, they are looking to "fix" the problem and may just end up making it worse. It's still under debate.

Can you please cite a recent study/poll/survey that shows that a "good amount of people" wish that the US economic policy was more "liberal" (whatever that would mean... I am not exactly sure). Because I am sure I have seen polls that state that Americans have a significant concern about the national debt and deficit (not the most pressing item, but it ranks up there below jobs). Certainly more government spending (which is what I assume is considered "liberal") would not alleviate into those concerns.

Because it MATTERS! He is responsible for what is happening in this country and he Has NOT done what he said he was going to do as far as the economy goes! He has SPENT like he said he was going to do and that is about all. Healthcare will be repealed because it is NOT a good thing for our country otherwise he would not be giving out WAIVERS left and right!

Summary of various polls here: Poll: Voters deficit-worried but wary of cuts - Politics - msnbc.com

Vast majority of people (81% i believe) want to raise taxes on the rich
Majority of people do not like Ryan's medicare plan, in fact the majority do not want any medicare cuts
Majority of people want to drastically cut military spending

I can go on and on but there are a lot of liberal positions related to the economic that Obama has not done that liberals support.
