RE: 2008 Temperatures

A new Washington Post-ABC News poll is even worse for Romney: 26 percent favorable to 34 percent unfavorable, which is absolutely remarkable given his lack of name recognition. He’s also the only one of the big six candidates in both parties to have a net negative rating. Giuliani has the highest rating: 64 favorable to 28 unfavorable. So in other words, more people have an unfavorable view of Romney than Rudy–even though 40 percent of people don’t know enough about Romney to have an opinion, while only 8 percent have no opinion on Rudy. Meanwhile, as far as horse race numbers, Rudy has opened up a 44-21 lead over McCain. Romney is at just 4 percent–that’s a drop from 9 percent in the same poll in January. At least according to this poll, Romney isn’t making a good first impression.
