Half of Americans interviewed for an Associated Press-GfK poll say the economic outcome of an Obama or Romney election will be the same no matter, Time magazine reported

In other words, they see no difference in what a presidential win for either candidate will do for the economy. They remain negative about the economic outcome no matter what.

Most remain negative about the president's ability to impact future job creation. Six out of 10 interviewed said the president will have a slim chance or no chance at all to change unemployment numbers.

Still, Americans agree the economy is the number one issue.
