Since 1976, no serious contender, Democrat or Republican, has watched his favorable ratings fall as low as Romney’s have in recent months. Or watched his unfavorable ratings climb as high. Or watched his overall numbers stay underwater—that is, more unfavorable than favorable—for so long.
At this rate, Romney is shaping up to be the most unpopular presidential nominee on record.
Most. Unpopular. Nominee. Ever.
To defeat Barack Obama in November, Mitt Romney would have to make history by overcoming a larger favorability deficit than any other modern presidential candidate.
I’m voting for Obama because I’ve seen the affects of not having good healthcare. I’ve seen people avoid hospitals because they know they cannot afford it even though it would be wise for them to go.
I’m voting for Obama because too many people had to drop out of school because of educational costs. I’m voting for Obama because he knows how to pray and not force his beliefs on the rest of the country.
I’m voting for Obama because he hasn’t publicly stated anything to make me feel like I was less of a person because I am a man of color. Obama-Biden 2012. Let’s do this!
