Despite Team Romney's best efforts to cast Obama as "not working" for Americans, respondents in a new Reuters poll still prefer the president on key issues. He leads the Republican on health care by 53 to 36 percent; economy and jobs by 47 to 44 percent; and on taxes by 49 to 38 percent. In addition, Obama has an overall edge with registered voters by 49 to 42 percent. (Photo: REUTERS/Jason Reed)
