Voters are not convinced that the economy will improve no matter who’s elected president in November.  A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 32% of Likely U.S. Voters believe the economy will get better if President Obama is reelected, but 37% believe it will get worse.

If likely Republican nominee Mitt Romney wins the election, 36% expect the economy to improve, but 35% believe the opposite.  (To see survey question wording, click here.)
