Americans are split on who should be in the White House next year according to a new poll.

The Washington Post/ABC News survey showed the two candidates statistically tied with 49% of Americans backing Obama and 46% supporting Romney. When asked which contender would best handle the economy, Obama and Romney were tied at 47%.

But there is a big enthusiasm gap.

A marked enthusiasm gap opened between the two candidates in the new poll. Forty-eight percent of Obama’s supporters said they were “very enthusiastic” about the president’s candidacy, compared to 23% of Romney’s backers who said they were “very enthusiastic” about supporting the Republican candidate.
