Most voters still think the economy will get worse or stay about the same, no matter which candidate wins the White House and which party wins control of Congress in November. But theyre now a little more confident in economic gains if Mitt Romney and the Republicans come out ahead. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that only 34% of Likely U.S. Voters think the economy is likely to get better if President Obama is reelected and Democrats regain full control of Congress, marking little change from early July when the two sides ran nearly even. By comparison, 43% now believe the economy is likely to improve if Romney wins and the GOP is in charge of Congress. Thats up seven points from 36% in the previous survey.
Sixty-two percent (62%) are more pessimistic about the economic impact if the president and his party in Congress win the election, with 41% who expect the economy to get worse and 21% who say it will stay about the same.
Fifty-two percent (52%) paint a similar picture if the Republican challenger wins and the GOP takes over Congress, including 37% who think the economy is likely to worsen and 15% who feel it will stay about the same. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
This survey of 1,000 Likely Voters nationwide was conducted on September 25-26, 2012 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.
C’mon, Scott; get with the program!

Exactly. What a massive snow job being pulled by the msm. Obama is losing with independents, not getting any republican votes, losing states he won in 08, and has less confidence and approval of him than in 2010. So there is absolutely no way - NONE - he is winning.
34% of people polled are Democrats who will never admit they are wrong. Recall that 34% always supported Bill Clinton no matter what and claimed they believed him when he said he didn’t have sex with Monica UP TO THE MOMENT HE ADMITTED HE LIED.
They lie. The 34%. They are always there in polls.
The economy is going to get better if Obama is re-elected? By what means? He hasn’t improved it yet. He has made it worse. What new policy does he propose to improve it? Or will it just get better on its own? Why even have a president or an economic policy then?
My view of it is this:
I don’t know if things will get better under Romney, but I know things will never get better under dear leader.
