A new Rasmussen Reports poll of likely voters suggests Bill Clinton faces a tough challenge in his address to the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte this evening.

Clinton’s speech will attempt to reassure independent voters that Obama’s policies could return America to the economic prosperity enjoyed during his second administration in the late 1990s, according to reports.

However, only 32 percent of likely voters surveyed by Rasmussen say Presidents Clinton and Obama share economic views.

According to Rasmussen: "Slightly more (39%) think they have differing views on what’s needed, and another 29% are not sure."
