WASHINGTON - US President Barack Obama tops his main Republican rival in everything from personality to diplomacy - but when it comes to the economy, a new poll shows a potential weak spot in his bid to hold onto the White House.

A Washington Post-ABC poll on Tuesday found if the election were held now, the Democratic president would win in a match-up against Mitt Romney by 51 percent to 44 percent.

But the poll, conducted April 5 through April 8, shows Romney with a double-digit advantage among Americans when it comes to reducing the federal budget deficit, and with a narrow edge on managing the economy.

The finding show the president, who took office amid the largest economic slowdown since the Great Depression, is still vulnerable when it comes to matters of American's pocketbooks and wallets despite his overall advantages.
