President Obama’s “Osama bounce”–the jump in approval ratings from the death of the world’s most notorious terrorist–may be fading as Americans start to freak out about the sluggish economy. A new ABC News/Washington Post poll of registered voters across country give former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney’s a three-point advantage over the president. Romney’s lead is statistically insignificant, but it comes along with some more ominous signs for the Obama campaign: A majority of independent voters, who had warmed to the president after the killing of Bin Laden by Navy SEALS in early May, now disapprove of his job performance, and a new high–59%–of registered voters disapprove of his handling of the economy.
