Are You Better Off?

It's a question GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney has asked of voters time and time again: Are their lives better now than four years ago? In a New York Times/CBS News poll published Sept. 14, about 25 percent said their lives were better, nearly the same said their lives were worse and about half of all respondents reported their lives hadn't changed.
