Obama, Romney policy proposals still leave voters scratching heads about how they'd govern
WASHINGTON (AP) ¯¯¯ President Barack Obama has a 64-page blueprint for change. Republican rival Mitt Romney offers a 59-point jobs plan. Yet voters still sense something's missing.
Just 40 percent of Americans feel Obama "has a clear plan for solving the country's problems," according to a June survey by Gallup. Thirty-eight percent say Romney has a specific plan.
Plenty of presidential elections have been marked by a lack of specifics from the candidates. But the vagueness in the 2012 race is even more pronounced because both campaigns are spending more time arguing about past issues like Obama's health care law and Romney's private sector experience.
What they'd do in the future if elected isn't getting a lot of campaign attention.
