June 1, 2012— -- Coming up this Sunday, Obama deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter faces off with Romney campaign senior advisor Eric Fehrnstrom on the "This Week" powerhouse roundtable, with ABC News' George Will, Democratic strategist and ABC News contributor Donna Brazile, and Nobel Prize-winning economist and New York Times columnist Paul Krugman, author of the new book "End This Depression Now!"

This week, the stock market tumbled as the latest jobs report showed the economy created just 69,000 jobs in May, well below expectations. With unemployment at 8.2 percent, has President Obama done enough to improve the economic picture during his first term? Or will high unemployment continue to hamper his campaign as Election Day draws closer? And can the Obama campaign withstand $1 billion in anticipated ad spending by GOP super PACs this election year, and renewed attacks on the administration's failed Solyndra investment?

And as Mitt Romney officially clinches enough delegates for the Republican presidential nomination, the Obama campaign opens a new line of attack on Romney's record as governor of Massachusetts. Did Romney's business background help improve the Bay State's economy or did he fall short of campaign promises? Coupled with attacks on Romney's Bain background, will the Obama campaign put a dent in Romney's economic experience?

The "This Week" powerhouse roundtable debates those topics and the rest of the week's politics, including a verdict in the John Edwards trial, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg's war on soda, and whether renewed debates on gay marriage and abortion may impact the presidential election.
