More Americans trust the GOP than Democrats to improve the economy, according to a new CNN poll.

Forty-eight percent of respondents chose congressional Republicans when it comes to economic issues, with 45% picking Democrats. That's a stark reversal from last August, when Democrat enjoyed a 52%-39% advantage.

Interestingly, the parties are tied on the separate topic of "unemployment," both receiving 46%.

Democrats, meanwhile, enjoy a 2% advantage on healthcare and Afghanistan, with Republicans leading by 3% on taxes.
