RON PAUL U.S.A. | August 8, 2012
According to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll, Romney's popularity is tanking only a few weeks ahead of the GOP convention.
The poll shows that 49% of voters have a negative view of Romney, which was up from 45% in May. The compares to only a 43% negative rating for Obama.
By a margin of 53% to 40%, more key Independent voters see Obama favourably rather than unfavourably, while 50% of this group view Romney unfavourably, compared to 37% who consider him favourably.
Even in the Republican Party, Romney is struggling to fire up the base. Only 41% feel strongly favourable, while 61% of Democrats feel the same about Obama.
Hey GOP, want to reconsider giving Ron Paul a speaking role at the convention, or do you still think you "got this"?
