(Week of 6/23/2012) Presumptive Republican Presidential nominee has had one real job for the past 5 or 6 years now, since he started his first run for President. One element of that job, surely, is to get a significant percentage of Americans to really like him. So far, he’s not made much progress. Only 9% like Romney a lot in the most recent Economist/YouGov poll, 31% like Romney somewhat, 36% dislike him and 24% are still not sure.
President Obama, for all the slings and arrows of high office these past three-and-a-half years, still does OK when it comes to getting Americans to warm up to him: 32% like Obama a lot, 26% like him somewhat, 31% dislike him, just 12% continue to reserve judgment.
