Economy remains weak spot for Obama

President Obama’s overall job approval rating is back to 50 percent, according to a Washington Post/ABC News poll. And he has an 8 percentage point lead over Mitt Romney. But those polled said that Romney would do a better job with the economy and the budget deficit. Obama also got low marks for his handling of gas prices, though a majority blamed other countries and U.S. oil companies for the high prices. Romney’s biggest challenges are with women and with likability (Obama leads Romney on likability by 38 points).
