Which candidate would be better for the economy?

The Rasmussen polling firm reports that on the question "Who do you trust more to help the economy?" there's only a six percent margin between Romney and Obama.

Astonishingly, 43 percent of those polled say Obama would be better on the economy, while 49 percent say Romney.

Let's see if I've got this right: After 30-some months of over-eight-percent unemployment, record deficit spending (3 straight years of Trillion-dollar deficits), billions given to companies run by Obozo cronies that later folded, 220,000 small businesses folding between 2008 and 2010, and a downgrade in our government's credit rating, 43 percent still think Obama would be better for the economy?

Are you kidding me?

This simply proves what ten minutes of conversation with Dems/liberals/progressives will tell you: Most of 'em don't understand economics, have no clue as to how jobs are created, believe big government is the key to all success, favor higher taxes, and don't trust people to make their own decisions.

In other words, economically illiterate.

Ignorance has afflicted roughly a third of all humans forever. But you'd think that with free libraries and the internet, more Americans would be starting to get just a smattering of education on how economics and jobs work. Unfortunately, doesn't seem to be working that way.
