Patch’s Poll: Do You Trust Obama or Romney With Fixing the Economy?

The latest poll puts Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama in a dead heat among voters, with the economy still being the top issue.

Mitt Romney stood before the Republican National Convention delegates on Thursday and proclaimed, as he has done over the past year, that he was the best person to fix the broken economy.

“(President Obama’s) promises gave way to disappointment and division,” Romney told the delegates, as reported by The Tucson Citizen. “This isn’t something we have to accept. Now is the moment when we can do something. And, with your help, we will do something.”

Meanwhile, the economy is still the hot issue this year, given the high unemployment numbers and low growth. According to the National Journal, both Romney and Obama are in a dead heat when it comes to who would be better at economic issues.

And the economy is still the most important issue for 71 percent of the voters, the article noted.

This week, we head into the Democratic National Convention, where the political left will explain why Obama should stay in office and why he deserves another four years as commander in chief.

When comparing the two candidates, which do you think is better at economic issues? President Barack Obama or Mitt Romney? Take our poll and share your thoughts in the comments.

Both parties are cooperating in taking our economy down the drain--neither Obama or Romney talk about our bloated military entitlement program--the biggest of all entitlement program. This waste of money takes away from all productive activities that could lead to a much better economy and to good jobs. Has the military-industrial complex and their super rich cronies in the media and in the government taken over America with their never-ending spin?

Well we've seen what Obama has done and it's not looking too good for America's future! If he continues, there won't be an American future!

We’re not quite at that http://www.coachfactoryoutletonlinebc.org stage yet. But we may be on the right path. For http://www.coachoutletod.com perhaps the greatest geek triumph of the 2012 presidential http://www.coachfactoryoutletbo.net elections was the unlikely figure of statistician Nate Silver, http://www.coachoutletpn.com whose FiveThirtyEight blog – which algorithmically assessed http://www.coachfactorystoredo.com hundreds of polls based on their historical accuracy – http://www.coachoutletos.org managed to successfully predict the result in 50 out http://www.coachoutletstorefb.com of 50 states.His analysis – like every political story – divides http://www.coachoutletstoreonlinert.com opinion. To my mind, though, his work shines a light on a bigger story about our future relationship http://www.coachoutletonlinelc.net with technology, and in particular on a vision of progress http://www.coachoutletonlinelon.com where there’s an increasingly clear divide between those http://www.coachoutletonlinelsa.com endeavours that can safely be left to humans, and those where http://www.coachoutletdt.net machines and mathematics are preferable.It’s something that http://www.louisvuittonoutletcft.net is already happening.
