Washington, June 2: US President Barack Obama and Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney are locked in a dead heat among Americans nationally, according to a new poll.
According to CNN’s latest poll, 49 percent Americans preferred to vote for Obama if the November elections were held today, as opposed to 46 percent for Romney, Politico reported.
Obama had a nine-point advantage in CNN’s last poll, which was conducted in early April.
“Which candidate better understands how the economy works? That’s a tie as well, 45% pick Obama, 45% choose Romney,” CNN Polling Director Keating Holland said.
According to the survey, one in five said that neither candidate can fix the economy, with another one in five saying that the economy will recover regardless of who will win in November.
Almost 31 percent said that America’s economic conditions would improve only if Romney won, while 28 percent believe the same would improve only if Obama stayed in office. (ANI)
