When Osama bin Laden was killed in May 2011, President Obama banked on that event securing his credibility for the 2012 election when it came to foreign policy. It turns out, President Obama isn't getting as much credit as he thinks he deserves. According to a new Rasmussen Report, voters are split on whether President Obama or Mitt Romney have stronger stances on foreign policy issues.
Mitt Romney’s campaign portrayed his quick overseas trip as a success. President Obama’s team described the trip as an embarrassment and a gaffe-fest. When it ended, voters remain evenly divided between the candidates on foreign policy issues. Forty-four percent (44%) of Likely U.S. Voters believe the president is better able to deal with America’s allies. Another 44% say Romney is better for that task.
