The Romney campaign woke up to some disappointing poll numbers this morning. While a CNBC survey reporting that 55% of voters believe the economy is worse off than it was four years ago would normally be good news for the Romney camp, the poll also gave President Obama a 9% point edge on who would do a better job with the economy over the next four years. For a candidate whose calling card in this election is “Mr. Fix-it” for the economy, it could be an ominous sign.
Meanwhile, two other polls found the President pulling ahead in the crucial swing state of Ohio, leading Governor Romney by eight and ten points.
