Poll: Romney Leads Obama on Economy

October 6, 2011
Data from the poll released Wednesday showed Romney with a four-point lead over Obama, within the survey's margin of error. Perry trailed Obama by a single point in the poll. Romney's advantage over the current president is not restricted to economic issues. By a four-point margin, they prefer Romney on Social Security, 46 percent to 42 percent. Perry, on the other hand, trails Obama on Social Security; some Republican opponents have criticized Perry's past statements and positions on the issue, and 35 percent of voters in the poll say they think Perry wants to end the program. On foreign policy, voters are split between Obama and Romney, with each preferred by 43 percent of voters. Obama leads Perry on the question by eight points. The question about foreign policy was asked after respondents rated Obama on the situation between Israel and the Palestinians: only 34 percent of voters approve of his handling of that issue, while 48 percent disapprove. The Quinnipiac University poll was conducted Sept. 27-Oct. 3, surveying 2,118 registered voters, for a margin of error of +/- 2.1 percent.
