A new Washington Post/ABC News poll shows that 54 percent of Americans disapprove of President Barack Obama’s handling of the economy, while only 44 percent approve.

Likely Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney scored some major victories over Obama on economic issues. A total of 47 percent of respondents said Romney would handle the economy better, while 43 percent chose Obama. And 51 percent said Romney would handle the budget deficit better, while only 38 percent chose Obama.

To be sure, 49 percent of respondents said Obama better understands people’s economic problems, while 37 percent chose Romney.

The numbers are mixed for Obama when it comes to gasoline prices. Only 28 percent of respondents approve of his handling of that issue, while 62 percent disapprove. But only 21 percent of Americans blame Obama for high gas prices, while 28 percent blame U.S. oil companies, and 25 percent blame foreign oil-producing countries.

While the recession officially ended in June 2009, a whopping 76 percent of Americans say it feels like we’re still in a recession, while 21 percent feel it’s over. Respondents were about equally split as to whether the economy is improving, with 48 percent saying yes and 49 percent saying no.
