Ipsos/ Reuters Political Tracker
Washington, DC - Ipsos' national poll for Reuters shows that the economy is still the biggest issue for Americans, and that almost half the public (46%) are unhappy with President Obama's performance so far on this issue -- compared to a third (34%) who give him a good rating. And while half the public think he is doing well on issues like diplomacy and education, two-thirds believe he hasn't focused enough on job creation.
The biggest challenge for the Democrats looking towards the midterm elections in November will be turnout; currently just 49% of Democrats say they are certain to vote on election day, compared to 72% of Republicans.
