USAToday/Gallup: Most Think 'President Romney' Better for Economy

Monday, 14 May 2012 07:24 PM

Americans are feeling more upbeat about the future of the economy and a majority think things would actually improve if Mitt Romney becomes president, according to a new USAToday/Gallup poll.

Though a whopping 71 percent say that current economic conditions are poor, a 58 percent majority predict things will be better a year from now. Nearly two-thirds say they will be better off at this time next year.

The poll shows 55 percent say the economy would get better over the next four years if Romney was elected. For Obama that number is  46 percent.

And while an improvement in Americans' economic outlook might be good for the incumbent president, there is upbeat news for Romney as well.

Romney's favorable-unfavorable rating has jumped to 50 to 41 percent,  the best ever compated to Obama's 52-46 percent. And Romney does better and receives better ratings when it comes to handling the economy -- a key election issue -- than does the President.

And for the first time in the campain cycle, Republicans seem to be taking the advantage in upcoming congressional elections. By 55-44 percent, those questioned said they were more likely to vote for the GOP candidate. In a similar poll in February, USA Today found that the two parties were tied for support, while in August, Democrats had a 7-point advantage.
