The Washington Post - ABC News poll

Question 38 of 63

In this poll:

With the general-election campaign beginning to take shape, President Obama holds clear advantages over Mitt Romney on personal attributes and a number of key issues, but remains vulnerable to discontent with the pace of the economic recovery, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.

This Washington Post-ABC News poll was conducted by telephone April 5-8, 2012, among a random national sample of 1,103 adults, including landline and cell phone-only respondents, including additional interviews with randomly selected African Americans, for a total of 199 black respondents. The added interviews (commonly referred to as an “oversample”) were completed to ensure there were enough respondents for separate analysis; the group is not over-represented in the reported results. Results for the full sample have a 3.5 point error margin. Sampling, data collection and tabulation by Abt-SRBI of New York. NOTE: Due to rounding, results may not add to 100 percent, and percentages may not equal combined results. Groups are not displayed if fewer than 100 people in the category were interviewed
