Rasmussen: 49% Trust Romney On Economic Issues
Given that this election is almost certainly going to hinge on economic issues, this poll result gives me hope:
Voters now have more confidence in presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney than in President Obama when it comes to the economy, but on other major issues facing the nation, the two men continue to run nearly even.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey asks Likely U.S. Voters whom they trust more on five key issues, and when it comes to the economy, 49% say Romney versus 39% who trust the president more. Twelve percent (12%) are not sure.
And people really have their eye on the economy:
The economy continues to be by far the most important issue as far as voters are concerned, with health care in second place. When it comes to health care, 46% trust Romney more, but nearly as many (42%) place more confidence in Obama.
I expect the health care numbers to change when the Supreme Court releases its ruling on ObamaCare, but I’m not sure which way they’ll move. However, it looks like Mitt is in the driver’s seat on the economy, as long as he doesn’t screw it up.
