Poll Shows the More People Know About Romney, the Less They Like Him


Here's a telling poll about the GOP Establishment's candidate, Mitt Romney.  The more people know about him, the less they like him.  What a tragedy it will be if this man becomes the GOP nominee, particularly when a president's reelection is usually a referendum on the incumbent, and the incumbent makes Jimmy Carter's presidency look successful by comparison.
Record Number See Romney Negatively; Obama Outpaces Him in Popularity

Mitt Romney trails Barack Obama by 19 points in basic popularity as the 2012 presidential contest inches closer to the main event, with a record 50 percent of Americans in the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll now rating Romney unfavorably overall.

Thirty-four percent hold a favorable opinion of Romney, the lowest for any leading presidential candidate in ABC/Post polls in primary seasons since 1984. His unfavorable score is higher than Obama ever has received; it’s been exceeded by just one other Republican candidate this year, Newt Gingrich, and by only one top candidate in 28 years, Hillary Clinton in 2008.
