A Gallup poll on Obama and Romney

A recent Gallup Poll compares Americans’ perceptions of the two presidential candidates.
Who is better on the issues? Mitt Romney leads Barack Obama on the federal budget deficit, 55% to 36%. Romney has a ten-point lead on the economy, and smaller leads on creating jobs, and taxes. Obama leads on foreign affairs, 52% to 40%.
This one surprised me a bit. On healthcare Obama and Romney are tied in this poll at 47%.
In perceptions about characteristics; on “likable” … Obama 60%, Romney 30%. The President has an 11-point lead on “Understands the problems Americans face in their daily lives”. “Is honest and trustworthy” … Obama 47%, Romney 39%. But in answer to the question “Can get things done”, Romney holds the edge, 46% to 41%.
I always watch the economy during a presidential campaign. If it improves this summer, I’ll give Obama the edge. But if the economy remains stagnate or begins to slip, Romney’s chances improve dramatically.
