A recent CNN/ORC poll found that GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney leads President Obama 51% to 43% in 15 battleground states.
Friday’s so-so jobs report brought lots of press releases from both sides of the aisle, but it did little to clear up the confusion on the economy’s recovery. We’ll talk to Former CBO director Douglas Holtz-Eakin and Mark Zandi, Chief Economist for Moody's Analytics about what the latest economic figures mean and how they will impact the 2012 race. President Obama reacting to the jobs numbers said; “We’ve got to grow the economy even faster. And we’ve got to put even more people back to work. The problem is we’ve got a stalemate in Washington. This election is about how we break that stalemate.”
Mitt Romney on the other hand said the President is to blame. “The president’s policies have clearly not been successful, in reigniting this economy, in putting people back to work, in opening up manufacturing plants across the country.”
And finally, we’ll talk to former New Jersey Senator Bill Bradley about what he thinks needs to be done to “fix” Washington’s problems, putting people back to work, and his thoughts on the role of government.
