With falling unemployment, Obama will tumble Romney in US elections
Survey results have shown that Barack Obama will win, if elections were held now in the US by..

MITT ROMNEY, who has been on a winning spree in the caucuses, might stand a chance against Barack Obama only if he is allowed to fight along with Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum, his fellow but rival Republican candidates. This is because of the results of the ABC/Washington Post survey, which have revealed that Obama would win 51 per cent of votes, ahead of 45 per cent for Mitt Romney.

The main reason for this is the improvement in the ailing US economy that has started to show signs of recovery under Obama’s leadership. According to The Telegraph Obama’s chances are boosted by falling unemployment and negative reaction to the Republican primary contest.

According to the paper, it is the first time that any contender has broken the 50 per cent barrier in months. "I deserve a second term, but I am not done," said Mr Obama. "We've created 3.7 million jobs in the last 23 months. We've created the most jobs since 2005, the most manufacturing jobs since 1990, but we're not finished," Telegraph quoted Obama.

Romney’s aggressive style and deep resources were seen as an ideal combination that would help him put up a tough fight against Obama but he seems to have failed to strike a chord with ordinary voters like Obama did during his campaign. His disagreement on Obama’s promise to raise taxes on millionaires is also seen one of his negatives. According to the paper, polls also claim that Romney is failing to shake off the tag of elitism, with 53 per cent saying they felt Obama understood the economic problems of ordinary voters, compared with 36 per cent for Romney.

While he is still seen as the Republican favourite for nomination but his chance in the White House looks shakier, after the survey results were announced. His Republican rivals, Gingrich and Santorum enjoy the support in conservative bases where he has failed to make an impact and that could be one of the contributing factors of his loss to Obama.
