A Draw on the Economy

Gary Langer points out exit polls found President Obama "neutralized Mitt Romney on the economy, beat him on empathy and again turned the curve of America's demographic change to Democratic advantage, winning a second term despite an unemployment rate that posed a major threat to his re-election campaign."

"Deeply vulnerable on an economy that 77 percent of voters said is still in bad shape, Obama gave Romney just a single point in trust to handle it, 49-48 percent - far short of the real advantage Romney wanted, and needed, on the crux issue of the campaign."

"Indeed, even among the six in 10 voters who named the economy as the top issue facing the country, Romney only narrowly edged Obama out, 51 to 47 percent."
