Romney Still Not Well-Liked By Voters
Note that according to this George Washington University Battleground Poll (taken August 5th to 9th), the majority of those who say they will vote for the Republican candidate in November are actually voting against the president rather than voting for Romney (52%). Only 39% say they are voting for Romney. That tells me the majority think they will be voting for the lesser of two evils -- and if the Republicans think that, how is this going to play with the Independents?
Most of those who say they will be voting Democratic though, say they will be voting for President Obama -- not against Romney. Democrats (and the American people in general) like Obama. And I'd lot rather go into an election with a candidate that is well-liked than one that is not liked -- regardless of what the economy is like.
