The Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll gives Obama a whopping 94-percent lead over Romney among African American voters (94% to 0%). Romney leads among whites (53% to 40%) and seniors (49% to 41%).
But there's bad news for both candidates in the poll according to Mediaite:
The poll further identified two obstacles Romney has: his image and his Medicare overhaul proposal.
What’s more, Obama bests Romney by 35 points (58 percent to 23 percent) on the question of which candidate is more likeable, and by 22 points (52 percent to 30 percent) on caring about average people.
In addition, a majority of voters (51 percent) view the former Massachusetts governor’s approach to issues as being “out of step” with most Americans’ thinking. By comparison, 54 percent say Obama’s positions are “in the mainstream.”
Obama’s challenge? The economy. More than six in 10 said they think the country’s headed in the wrong direction (“essentially unchanged from last month”) — and 44 percent said Romney has better ideas on how to improve the economy, versus Obama’s 38 percent.
