Mitt Romney Is Just Not Likable
It remains one of the mysteries of the political season. How was it not in the game plan over the past several years to remake Mitt Romney, allow for other aspects of his personality to shine, in order to make him more appealing to a wide segment of the voting electorate?
Or is the Mitt Romney we see, all that there is to see?
Mitt Romney is laboring under the lowest personal popularity ratings for a presumptive presidential nominee in midsummer election-year polls back to 1984.
Forty percent of Americans overall view Romney favorably, 49 percent unfavorably – leaving him underwater, at least numerically, in 10 straight ABC News/ Washington Post polls this year. A new high of 30 percent now see him “strongly” unfavorably, nearly double his strongly favorable score.
