WASHINGTON (AP) -- A new poll suggests that the race between President Barack Obama and Republican Mitt Romney remains neck-and-neck.

But Americans are feeling better about the country's future and about Barack Obama's job performance.

The Associated Press-GfK poll has Obama's approval rating at 52 percent among all adults, and just 37 percent for Romney.

But among those most likely to vote, Obama is supported by 47 percent of voters and Romney gets 46 percent.

    I was referring to capital gains portion of the tax bill, but whatever. Good job derailing the conversation with personal attacks. BTW: the most influential people from both parties are lining up to be on "ameba"'s show. Also unlike your great fellas he's alive.

    Wow I soo impressed, with your wealth, Not!! As your messiah says you didn’t do it your self, you got it from Mommy (if you are not living in a trailer in the desert). Also you need to give that to all who work for you. You know redistribute it to clean your evil soul. I have never had any envy ever towards any ones affluences. As for funny, you are right Limbaugh, Stewy and Beck pale to Will Rodgers, Skelton, Brooks, or Churchill. Stewy is as smart as an ameba.

    Oh, I have a life, much better than many. If anything I'm in the same boat as Romney. It's just he has no right to call people paradises when he's the one of the biggest and always was. I know Steward annoys the heck out of you, but at least he's funny and smart. Conservative talking heads like Beck and Limbo are just drugged up sociopaths.

    You get you news from a confirmed Socialist and a comedian at that? You have got to be kidding right. Whenever this clown debates anyone who is intellectually superior, most 3rd graders cause him to stutter and drop his head and falls back to really lame humor. Get a life and look at all who benefitted from all the businesses Romney and his family helped and supported.

    I guess you should return your social security checks. Here's good one for you: http://www.thedailyshow.com/watch/wed-september-19-2012/chaos-on-bulls--t-mountain---the-entitlement-society Romney got enough government tax subsidies in one year to keep him on food stamps till year 4870. Also his immigrant parents enjoyed welfare.

    The only people who should be on the public dole are the disabled. These baby machines and others who can work should not. There are too many looking for a free handout without doing a thing to lift themselves up and out of the hole they live in. The private and religious charities have always and will always help the truly needy. The government has no place in supporting the lazy leaches sucking on society’s teat.

    Keep fooling yourself. Dude's history. Good job alienating own voter base by calling them "parasites". Does he really think that old folk and poor who work mind numbing jobs for nearly minimum wage are voting for Obama? Even after his comments most of them are still going to vote for Romney but they're going to feel dead inside for it.

    Yea right, as if we are going to believe that malarkey, every one knows the polls during the last election showed the Democrats would keep the House. The AP is run by liberal press and will never give a fair review to any conservative. IE they are just the typical propaganda machine for Communist party.
