Republican Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney says he will measure compassion by how many people he can get off unemployment.

Republican presidential candidate Romney says he would do a better job of helping the poor than President Barack Obama as he tries to recover from a secret video that showed him dismissing nearly half the electorate as dependent on government help. He has accelerated his efforts to recover from a secret video that showed him dismissing nearly half the electorate as dependent on government help. Romney has sought to make the Nov. 6 election a referendum on Obama's economic stewardship, but over the past week the spotlight has been fixed firmly on his own missteps - most recently the video.

"The question in this campaign is not who cares about the poor and the middle class. I do, he does," Romney said, adding, "The question is who can help the poor and the middle class. I can, he can't and he's proven it in four years."

A Reuters/Ipsos daily tracking poll showed Obama leading Romney 48 percent to 43 percent among likely voters.
