NATIONAL–PRESIDENT–GENERAL ELECTION (Washington Post / ABC News): Obama 51, Romney 44.
A new Washington Post-ABC News poll finds President Obama has double-digit leads over Mitt Romney on who would do a better job of protecting the middle class, handling international affairs and dealing with health care. On personal traits, the president’s edge is even bigger: He has a better than 2-to-1 advantage as the more friendly and likable of the two, and nearly that margin as “more inspiring.”
However, on the economy and jobs “the contest is considerably more competitive, with about as many trusting Romney on the issues as Obama.”
