Mitt Romney Favorability Lower Than George W. Bush, Poll Finds

Source: Huffington Post

If Mitt Romney was hoping to distance himself from former President George W. Bush, a new poll has some news that might trouble the Republican presidential nominee: Bush posted higher favorability ratings than Romney.

The national survey, conducted by Bloomberg News and released Wednesday, found that Bush received a favorable rating of 46 percent, while Romney's favorable rating was 43 percent. Forty-nine percent of respondents gave Bush an unfavorable rating, compared to 50 percent of respondents who gave Romney an unfavorable rating.

...

A wave of recent polls has shown Romney struggling to keep up with President Barack Obama. A lower favorability rating than Bush, who was recently named the most unpopular living U.S. president, shows how difficult it has been for the GOP nominee to resonate with voters during his current presidential bid.

1. That is absolutely more of a condemnation of American's favorability of Dubya than of Mitt Romney.

46 percent for Bush?

Pathetic and disgusting.

2. Bush always had that "like to have a beer with him" bullshit in his favor. . .

Not many want to spend a sober hour with Romney.

6. Oddly, neither Bush nor Romney drink beer, but the President is often photographed drinking a beer.

You would think that ought to give the President an insurmountable advantage on the "like to have a beer with him" issue

4. Gross and disgusting.

To favor a war criminal over anything tells me all I need to know about the people that were polled.

Romney is bad...but to favor a war criminal? Sorry sacks of shit.

Course, the people that were polled probably think torture is just fine.

5. I agree. What's amazing is that there are those among the pro-torture crowd who dislike Romney
