Americans fed up with political process

WASHINGTON – Americans appear fed up with the political process and the leaders from whom they have to choose in 2012.

A new USA TODAY/Gallup poll finds a majority think the election process isn’t working and the candidates aren’t proposing good ideas.

Fewer than half say there’s a candidate in the race who would make a good president.

President Barack Obama is in a statistical dead-heat with Republican challengers Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich.

The poll’s margin of error was plus or minus 4 percentage points.
