Obama, Dems enjoy favorability edge

Obama, Dems enjoy favorability edge

By Steve Benen

The new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll notes that Mitt Romney's favorability rating is still underwater: "t's lower than every other presidential nominee's score at this similar point of time in the history of the poll -- except for George H.W. Bush's 34-52 rating in October 1992." The latest ABC News/Washington Post poll shows very similar results.

It's safe to say the "47 percent" video took a severe toll on the Republican's public standing.

But looking over the internals (pdf) of the NBC poll, it's not just Romney with a problem -- it's his party.

1. The republican party made this bed, now it can die in it.

 

I wonder if they are going to form two new parties or just attempt to rebrand the tainted current one.

5. For the same reason

the polls show Mitt within "striking distance."

Seriously, a few percentage points in a national poll is significant.

What's interesting is the Democratic Party is polling more positively than Mitt. That can't be good.
