New CNN and Quinnipiac polls show President Obama has reached a new high in the percentage of voters who disaprove of how he has handled the economy:
A CNN/ORC poll released Thursday found deep dissatisfaction with the president’s management of the economy: Sixty-five percent of Americans said they disapprove of the way Obama is handling the economy, the highest level of disapproval the president has faced on that question in this poll.
And it looks like independent voters are looking to Mitt Romney for answers:
The poll found that more voters believe Republican presidential candidate and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney would do a better job on the economy than Obama. Forty-six percent said Romney would be better for the economy, compared to 42 percent for the president.
Among independent voters, 49 percent said Romney would do better on the economy, with only 37 percent trusting the president’s efforts.
