This poll from CNBC may explain why the poll numbers for Obama have gotten better over the last few weeks. Most voters pick the economy as their number one issue, and more of them say they will vote for Obama than Romney, and here is why.

This should give hope to Team Romney, as they try to figure out ways to reset the race. If they can convince voters that Romney has a better plan for the economy and that he can execute better than Obama, he may still have a chance at turning around perceptions on this crucial question. Perhaps in the debates Romney will try to show up Obama as not as good as him when it comes to the economy.

Our latest CNBC All-America Economic Survey of 800 American adults across the nation shows Obama with a nine-point lead over Romney, 43 percent to 34 percent, on who would do a better job on the economy in the future.

In June, CNBC asked Americans who had “good ideas for how to improve the economy,” a variation on the question asked in this poll. Romney held a 39 percent to 33 percent advantage over Obama. Compared with the prior poll, Romney maintained his 80 percent support among Republicans, but lost ground with independents.

Obama gained substantial support among African-Americans, Latinos, and Democrats, and picked up a small percentage among whites.
