Mitt Romney has advanced to a slight lead over Barack Obama in trust to handle the economy, and Obama has slipped beneath a clear majority in who better understands the public's economic problems – two key metrics of the 2012 presidential race.

These trends in the latest ABC News/Washington Post daily tracking poll aren't strong enough to change current preferences, nor is the 2-1 view that Obama won Monday night's final debate. But they're among the underlying dynamics making the race seem closer now than a month ago.

The candidates remain essentially tied, with 49 percent of likely voters for Romney, 48 percent for Obama in this poll, produced for ABC by Langer Research Associates. That includes vast and sharpening gaps among some groups, with highs for both candidates among core supporters.

Food for Thought

A Taxpayer voting for the White House Occupant and his court jester is the same as a chicken voting for Colonel Sanders.

More Food.......

Or a cow voting for Dave Thomas.

I suddenly have a craving for fast food.

Should I go get some beef or should I "eat mor chikun"?
