Seems the more people get to know Mitt, the more they like him, as he is now just about even with obama on that "issue" (not really an issue, although the Left seems to think "likeability" would decide this election.

Americans more optimistic economy is looking up, poll says

Quote:
Though an overwhelming 71% rate economic conditions as poor, a 58% majority predict they will be good a year from now.
WHICH candidate do they believe will lead this economy to a good year?

Quote:
In the poll, 55% say the economy would get better over the next four years if Romney was elected, compared with 46% who say it would improve if Obama was re-elected.
Quote:
Since becoming the presumptive Republican nominee, Romney's favorable-unfavorable rating has jumped to 50%-41%, his best ever and in the same neighborhood as Obama's 52%-46% standing.
Oh dear.

More good news for Romney.

Keep in mind that Obama's favorability rating =/= his job approval rating, which is far more important.

Obama's current job approval rating per Gallup is 45%.

Gallup Daily: Obama Job Approval

One other thing that spells trouble for democrats in Congress.

By 50%-44%, voters say they'll vote a republican candidate for Congress. It was tied in Feb 2012 and dems had a 7 point lead last year.

1994, 2010 is what happens when republicans are out that far ahead of democrats. Actually, in 1994, the generic ballot was tied........

This is great news! I was saying all along this would happen once the primaries ended, especially the likability boost. Go Romney!! Let's keep this trend going

As other topics I have replied to, next week Obama is going to be more favorable than Romney. By the way, the GOP nomination isn't over yet. Romney is not the nominee

As is the case with people of depth.

I think America is over its teenage "crush" on the "cool" kid, Obama and is ready to settle down with the "marriage material man" Romney.

Correct, nor is Obama the Democratic nominee. Maybe we will end up with a Ron Paul/Keith Judd election


What I meant was I knew this would happen once the perception of the general election campaign began, even though it is "technically" not official until August

I'm not surprised. Romney has finally had an opportunity to close his mouth for awhile.

Wait until he has to start talking a lot again and get back to me.

Nobody really thinks Oblama is likable except his shills. Not surprised at this poll. Romney will win over 30 states.
