A Reuters/lpsos poll found on Sunday US President Barack Obama tied with Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, an important campaign for Obama leaving him an opportunity to edge ahead of his opponent at the Democratic National Convention.
The race for presidential election on Nov. 6 is tight with 45 percent for Obama and 45 percent for Romney. This situation happens upon nomination of Obama for a second term this week in Charlotte , North Carolina among likely voters.
It was a survey conducted for Reuters by lpsos to judge voters’ attitudes around political conventions whose results were conducted from the seventh day of a rolling online poll.
Romney was off the campaign trail in New Hampshire and begins preparations for three debates with Obama in October; While Obama campaigned in Boulder , Colorado the state where he accepted the Democratic presidential nominations four years ago.
The Democrat task today is much more difficult with Americans struggling fewer than 8.3 percent unemployment, hope to generate the same kind of enthusiasm that propelled him to the White House in 2008.
Obama would offer an economic path forward when he gives his acceptance speech this week in Boulder as what the White House aides said on Sunday television talk shows. The Republican National Convention in Tampa last week was criticized by Obama and the attack against Romney is still going on.
Obama said, “Everything you heard from them…you have heard before. They have tried to sell us this trickle-down, you’re-on-your own snake oil before.” This is spoken at a large and supportive crowd at the University of Colorado .
The economy of the US is challenged by Obama and compare it to the first term of his presidency which is better according to him after four years.. But to the question last Sunday as to whether Americans are better off today than they were four years ago, his aides struggled to answer.
David Plouffe a White House adviser said on ABC’s “This Week,” “We’ve made a lot of progress from the depths of recession. We have a lot more work to do.”
