Poll: Americans like Romney more than they did. But they still like Obama better

| No Comments | No TrackBacks


Americans have a better view of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney today than they did a year ago, according to a newly released poll.

Will tonight's address to the nation help him turn the tide more in his favor?

A USA Today/Gallup poll, conducted Aug. 20-22 and released today showed 48 percent of Americans held a favorable view of him and 46 percent an unfavorable view.

That's an uptick from mid-July when Gallup says "significantly more" Americans held an unfavorable view of Romney. The poll though said Romney's numbers still fell below President Obama's numbers -- 53 percent of Americans hold a favorable view of the president.
