To follow up on Paddy’s “Yeah, it’s probably an outlier, but the sentiment is headed in our direction” post about Americans feeling they’re better off since President Obama took office, here’s more positive news from Bloomberg:
Washington (CNN) – A new national survey indicates President Barack Obama has opened up a double digit lead over Republican challenger Mitt Romney in the race for the White House, an advantage for Obama that no other major poll released this month has found.
According to a Bloomberg National Poll released Wednesday, 53% of people likely to vote in the November presidential election say they support the president, with 40% saying they back Romney, the former Massachusetts governor and presumptive GOP nominee. [...]
According to the poll, by a 55%-36% margin, likely voters view Romney as more out of touch with average Americans than Obama. And only 39% have a favorable view of Romney, with 48% saying they see him in a negative light. Fifty-five percent say the have a favorable opinion of the president, with 36% saying they view him in an unfavorable way.
Willard? Out of touch? Why, whatever would make Americans think such a thing?
