WASHINGTON, Sept. 28 (UPI) -- More adults trust U.S. President Obama than Republican rival Mitt Romney to handle the housing/mortgage crisis, a United Press International poll indicated.

Thirty-nine percent of adults asked said they thought Obama would better resolve the crisis that saw millions of Americans lose their homes during the past four years, while 35 percent of respondents said Romney could handle the crisis better, results of the UPI-CVoter poll released Friday indicated.

While poll results indicated male respondents were evenly divided between the candidates at 38 percent each, women asked said they preferred Obama 39 percent to 33 percent over Romney.

Broken down by age, adults 55 years and older said they trusted Romney more than Obama on this issue, 43 percent to 39 percent. In the 18-to-34 bloc, Obama had 41 percent support to Romney's 29 percent.

Among those who identified themselves as low-income wage-earners, 32 percent of respondents said they thought Obama could handle the mortgage crisis better, while 47 percent said Romney was the better choice.

Results are based on a national telephone survey of 916 adults Sept. 20-26. The margin of error is 3.5 percentage points.
