A new Washington Post-ABC News poll (via The Political Wire) shows Mitt Romney’s popularity has dropped dramatically with an unfavorable rating at 49% and favorable rating at 31%.
It’s even worse among independents: 51% don’t view him favorably while just 23% do.
Jonathan Chait: “The Obama campaign would almost certainly still prefer to run against Gingrich. But the electability gap between the two leading contenders is dwindling. No wonder more and more conservatives are frantically casting about for a new candidate to jump in and save the day.”
