On today’s show we are speaking to Richard Dorment, Senior Editor at Esquire, about a new poll on the Presidential race. As we roll towards November 6th we are looking back on how we got to where we are, who do we blame, and is there anyone who can save us? The economy for one, is a big question on the minds of millions of Americans.
Governor Romney is running his campaign saying that the President has not helped America get things back on track, but this poll shows most people don’t blame Obama for their current hardships. The Esquire/Yahoo! poll found that a majority of Americans blame Congress and former President George W. Bush for the current level of unemployment. Maybe that’s why you don’t see President Bush out stumping for Mitt Romney.
And as a mutli-million dollar businessman, 50% in the poll don’t think Mitt Romney is in touch with the basic economic issues facing American families. Only 38% of those polled feel the former Governor is in touch, compared to the 54% who think President Obama understands American families.
But it’s not all bad news for Romney. In a head-to-head match up, 53% would rather have him do their taxes then the President.
