As President Barack Obama enjoys a ten day vacation at a $50,000 week private farm on Martha’s Vineyard, a new Public Policy Polling survey offers sobering numbers for the president’s reelection bid.
According to the survey, President Obama and Mitt Romney are tied among voters nationally, 45% to 45%.
Obama fairs slightly better against Gov. Rick Perry, 49% to 43%, and smashes Michele Bachmann, 50% to 42%.
The economy and jobs, cited as the number one concern by all Americans, could sink President Obama’s reelection hopes. Obama squandered precious time pandering to Republicans and the Tea Party on the budget bill.
At this late point — the general election is only fourteen months from now, Obama has little time to effectively focus his energies on the issue the American people care most about – the economy and jobs.
