Mitt Romney Replaces Sarah Palin as America’s Most Hated Politician



Mitt Romney Replaces Sarah Palin as America’s Most Hated Politician

- snip -

The Pew Research Center for People and the Press survey revealed that more than half of respondents (52%) hold an unfavorable view of Mitt Romney, and only 37% have a favorable opinion of the Republican nominee. This is the sixth consecutive month that overall opinion of Mitt Romney has been negative. Romney’s unfavorable rating has increased five points in the past month, and has not been lower than 45% since November of 2011.

The high unfavorable rating would be manageable if Romney had an equally high favorable rating. The problem for him is that he doesn’t. The highest Romney’s favorable rating has been is 45%.

To put Romney’s numbers into context, when Sarah Palin hit her initial approval rating low point in March of 2010, she had an identical 37% approval rating and a slightly higher 55% disapproval rating. After her Paul Revere moment, Sarah Palin unfavorable rating was 54%. What should give the Republicans pause is that all of Palin’s unfavorable ratings are either lower than Romney’s or are within a three point margin of error of the man they have pinned their 2012 hopes on.

What should really terrify Republicans is that Romney’s image problem is nearly equal to Sarah Palin’s after her blood libel video. Romney is currently at 37%/52%. After her infamous post Gabby Giffords shooting blood libel video, Palin was at 38%/53%.

2. hahaha. Where's that happy dance smilie??

You know, it will be very very obvious if they try to steal this election. There are not enough mormons or day traders to push Romney over the top... even if you count the racists, he still loses.
