But Americans are feeling better about the country's future and about Barack Obama's job performance.

The Associated Press-GfK poll has Obama's approval rating at 52 percent among all adults, and just 37 percent for Romney.

But among those most likely to vote, Obama is supported by 47 percent of voters and Romney gets 46 percent.

Obama super PAC uses Romney video in new ad


A super political action committee supporting President Barack Obama is running the first television advertisement using Republican Mitt Romney's words from a closed-door fundraiser.

The ad from Priorities USA Action shows clips of Romney telling wealthy donors that 47 percent of Americans "believe that they are victims." Romney goes on to say he'll never convince them they should take personal responsibility.

The ad closes with a narrator saying Romney will never convince middle-class voters he's on their side.

The liberal magazine Mother Jones published the Romney video clips Monday.

The ad is part of a $30 million project by Priorities that focuses on how it believes Romney's proposals would hurt the middle class. The ad will run in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Ohio, Virginia and Wisconsin.
