On the question whether the economy will get back on to a path to prosperity, voters trust Republican Mitt Romney more than President Barack Obama, according to the ABC News/Washington Post daily tracking poll for Thursday, Nov. 1.
Fifty-four percent say if Romney is elected the economy will get back on track while 47 percent said they are confident the economy will improve if Obama is re-elected.
The poll finds, however, that only 36 percent of respondents blame Obama for the current state of the economy; instead, 51 percent blame his predecessor, George W. Bush.
Overall, the race is still too-close-to call. Forty-nine percent of likely voters favor Obama while 48 percent support Romney.
