Most Americans Trust Romney to Break Gridlock

More Americans believe Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney will be able to work with Congress to end gridlock in Washington.

A new Associated Press-GFK poll shows 47 percent think the Republican challenger will be able to work with Democrats to move the country forward.

Only 37 percent believe President Barack Obama is capable of doing the same with Republicans.

While Leigh Westholm of Pensacola, Fla., supports Obama's re-election, she wasn't optimistic he'd be able to work with Republicans.

"It takes two to tango and he has tried and tried for four years," Westholm said. "It might be better for Romney, but I don't agree with his views."

Romney supporter Gary Bivins, a 57-year-old West Chester, Ohio, retiree, sees the matter differently, saying a president must be able to lead.

"I think Obama has shown no skill in that area," Bivens said.

The survey of 1,186 adults, 839 of whom were likely voters, was conducted by GfK Roper Public Affairs and Corporate Communications from Oct. 19-23. The margin of error was plus or minus 3.5 percent, and 4.2 percent for likely voters.
