ECONOMY IS NO. 1 ISSUE: Voters were split on whether President Barack Obama or Republican challenger Mitt Romney would do a better job handling the economy. Rising prices and unemployment were the economic issues that voters said hit them the hardest. Just more than one in five voters said they were better off now than four years ago.
OBAMA'S JOB: About one in four voters said they were enthusiastic about Obama's administration, and about one in four said they were satisfied with the president. About three in 10 voters said they were dissatisfied and two in 10 said they were angry with the president.
SAME-SEX MARRIAGE: Just a third of voters said they supported same-sex marriage, which were similar numbers to an amendment voted on last May that defined marriage as only between a woman and a man. Obama has thrown his support behind gay marriage since the 2008 election.
