Economic issues will play a large part in determining the outcome of the presidential election when Democrat Barack Obama and Republican Mitt Romney go to the polls on November 6, 2012. Both candidates are seeking to win support from the same groups of voters - the large group of American voters who consider themselves neither Republican nor Democrat - and their sharply contrasting views on what ails America, and their prescriptions for cures, provide competing visions which will shape the future of the US for years to come.

BARACK Obama and Mitt Romney offer sharply contrasting assessments of the problems facing the American economy.
