A new Rasmussen Report shows likely voters trust Mitt Romney to handle the economy, not President Obama.

Voters continue to trust likely Republican nominee Mitt Romney more than President Obama when it comes to the economy and taxes but are more narrowly divided on three other key issues.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely Voters shows that 50% trust Romney more to handle the economy, while 42% trust the president more.

This number comes just before Mitt Romney and President Obama give dueling economic speeches today in the swing state of Ohio.
