The question has been swirling around Charlotte, where the Democrats are getting together for their convention and the opportunity to anoint Barack Obama for another go as their standard-bearer.  But, many voters are asking the question that Ronald Reagan asked so long ago.  We decided to turn the question on you and ask if you are better off than you were four years ago.  Let us know one way or the other in the poll below and tell us in the comments section what does or doesn't make you better off.
