    More Americans trust the congressional GOP to manage the economy than trust President Barack Obama, according to a year-end poll released Dec. 17 by the Washington Post and ABC.

    The poll also showed that 60 percent of 1,005 adult respondents support a one-year delay in Obamacare’s requirement that all people buy healthcare insurance, only 13 months after Obama swept to victory in November 2012.

    Obama and House Republicans receive equal support, 41 percent, on dealing with the main problems facing the nation.

    On the economy, the GOP gets the approval of 45 percent of the population, vice 41 percent for Obama, despite other questions showing that only 24 percent of people approve of the congressional GOP, says the poll.

    Forty-eight percent of respondents said the GOP could set the right balance between useful and wasteful government spending. Only 40 percent said Obama could find the right balance.

    Forty-four percent said the GOP “has better ideas about the right size and role of the federal government.” Obama’s score was 43 percent, marking a major loss of support for his progressive rule-by-experts policy. However 14 percent of people didn’t pick a side, showing that either side can yet gain a major lead.

    The poll also shows Obama’s approval among registered voters at 43 percent, and his disapproval at 55 percent. Only 50 percent of people say Obama is honest and trustworthy. Seventy-nine percent of respondents say the country is still in a recession
