Annals of finding the glass half-full

Democrats are taking cheer in the fact that Mitt Romney is a pretty unpopular guy:
A new ABC News-Washington Post poll finds Mitt Romney has emerged from the Republican primary season with the weakest favorability rating on record for a presumptive presidential nominee since 1984, trailing President Obama in personal popularity by 21 percentage points.

Romney is the first likely nominee to be underwater - seen more unfavorably than favorably - in eight presidential primary seasons across the past 28 years.
An unpopular guy, that is, who's edging Obama in the polls (or at least is statistically tied).

If Obama is neck-and-neck with the least popular candidate since Walter Mondale, that does not bode well.


  1. I think Romney will have to do something very smart and Obama do something very stupid in order for Romney to win. Thus Ronmey's fate is in Obama's hands.JL

  2. I dunno ... the economy has a long way to go.

    I recall the Saudis were supposed to start releasing more oil & driving gas prices down; they probably don't want another GOP president.
