A survey conducted by Elway Poll in the state of Washington between June 13 and June 16 shows that President Barack Obama remains comfortably ahead of his Republican opponent Mitt Romney. However, the president’s lead has been shrinking over the past four months.
President Barack Obama continued to attack former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney‘s policies on Tuesday during a fund raising event in Baltimore, Maryland. The president strongly rejects the presumptive Republican nominee’s opposition to tax rises on top earners, and does not believe that taxing the rich more would automatically reduce investments and damage the economy.
Presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney won all five primaries which were held on Tuesday. The former Massachusetts governor already had amassed a sufficient number of delegates to win the nomination after coming in pole position in the Texas contest last week.
The Republicans wasted no time to attack President Barack Obama on Friday following the release of disappointing payroll numbers by the Department of Labor. Data shows that the U.S. economy created a mere 69,000 jobs in May, well short of the 150,000 that had been anticipated.
